Hartman Will Not Seek Fourth Term On Pottstown School Board

Editor’s note:  I can’t blame him.  13 years is a pretty huge commitment. 

POTTSTOWN — For Pottstown School Board member Robert Hartman Jr., 13 years of service is apparently long enough.

At the close of Monday night’s school board meeting, Hartman announced that he will not seek another four-year term on the board in the spring primary elections.

Hartman said that with the deadline for petitions for the primary election approaching, he wanted to be sure his intentions were known so that anyone who is considering running for the office would know whether or not they would have to face him in the polls.

“I’ve heard that other people may be interested and it’s not fair for them not to know,” Hartman said.

Pottstown Citizens For Responsible Government…OH PLEASE, GIVE ME A BREAK!

Looks like Thomas “Spin” Hylton is at it again with his glossy mailers spewing forth misinformation and using scare tactics on Pottstown voters.  Negative campaigning is just that Tom, NEGATIVE!  It tends to backfire.  But since you started it and I am not running for office:

Mr. Hylton wanted to waste $15 million taxpayer dollars on pretty windows and geothermal heating for five elementary schools that we absolutely DO NOT NEED!

Mr. Hylton advocates keeping all five elementary schools open that we do not need and cannot afford. 

Mr. Hylton wanted to build a SIXTH elementary school in the core neighborhood.

Mr. Hylton was a total bully on the Shade Tree Commission and treated Pottstown taxpayers like dirt!  He is still holding onto thousands of dollars under Trees, Inc.  For what purpose since the borough is handling trees now?????  GIVE THE MONEY BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who are you to call other people “big spenders” that we cannot afford when you are head of the class!  Make me LOL!

Mr. Hylton you give Republicans a bad name!  Please take me off your mailing list(s) as your junk mail is cluttering up my mailbox!  Go pedal your half-truths somewhere else.

Pottstown taxpayers, do not be fooled by the man behind the curtain.  Citizens for Responsible Government is a misnomer!  Mr. Hylton is not advocating responsible government.  Mr. Hylton is advocating a self-serving government.  There is a BIG difference.  We do not need or want one person thinking they are in charge of Pottstown Borough and Pottstown School District.  This is a democracy!

Vote for Friends of Pottstown Public Education on May 17th and stop the madness!
