Anthony Gallo Jr. is running for Glen Cove mayor

Anthony Gallo Jr.

Gallo said the city's major issues are improving the economy, stopping overdevelopment and investing in facilities for children. Gallo said he wants to "improve our economic outlook by attracting light industry into the City of Glen Cove." He said he wants to create a commission on attracting businesses to the city. A proposed tax increment financing to pay for infrastructure on the waterfront would put the city in a "really bad financial position" and should be stopped, he said. Instead he wants to renegotiate the infrastructure part of the project "and come to agreement where the redeveloper is picking up more of the cost," he said.

Gallo, 38, is running as a Glen Cove United candidate. Gallo grew up and went to high school in Glen Cove. He received his bachelor's and master's degrees in health and physical education, school district administration at LIU Post. He was elected to the Glen Cove City Council in 2011. He works as a health and physical education teacher for the Glen Cove schools and is athletic and intramural supervisor at Robert M. Finley Middle School. He is married and has a daughter.
