After reading this, I am appalled at what this chancellor has done. Galatolo has ripped off the tax payers for over $1,000,000 and the DA has to think about filing charges?? Students, faculty, taxpayers and citizens should be outraged at his abhorrent behavior and demand he repay the district the money he stole for his personal gain. A salary of almost $500,000 plus benefits isn’t enough for [Portion removed due to disrespectful comment or offensive language] so he has to steal more. Someone needs to seize his assets and sell them. Unbelievable.
