Mike Galime: from Utica, but not for Utica.

As Election Day nears, it’s more crucial than ever to examine each candidate’s qualifications to serve as Mayor of Utica. The facts about Mike Galime raise serious concerns:

  1. 1. Galime Opted Out of Utica Schools

    Galime claims deep ties to Utica, yet chose not to enroll his children in the Utica school district. What message does this send to the rest of us who rely on Utica’s public schools?

  2. 2. Galime Has Criminal Associations

    Galime maintains close ties with and accepts financial support from criminals like convicted arsonist Russell Pelli and proven election fraudster Mirela Pekmez. These alarming associations cast doubt on Galime’s integrity.

  3. 3. Galime Won’t Commit to a Full-Time Mayor Role

    Galime has claimed he will be a “full-time Mayor,” but plans to keep his full-time, Colorado-based job and refuses to commit to any specific details about how he will prioritize his responsibilities as Mayor of Utica. How can we expect our Mayor’s full attention while he’s working another full-time job while also raising a family?

Mike Galime is from Utica, but his actions clearly show that he’s not for Utica. Ultimately, voters will decide if his conduct and connections serve the city’s best interests.
