Although he may be New Windsor's youngest mayor ever, Jack A. Gullo Jr. handled himself like a seasoned pro during his first meeting with the town council a week ago.Since Mr. Gullo won the election last month, there has been some apprehension in town circles about the new mayor. People feared that a 24-year-old law school graduate was too young and unfamiliar with town business. There was speculation that the more experienced hands in municipal government would run circles around him.Judging from his performance and from some of his proposals during last Wednesday's meeting, however, Mayor Gullo appears to be making an easy transition into office.

Some people may have thought that New Windsor Mayor Jack A. Gullo Jr. has been attempting to extort $183,600 from the Carroll County school board. They are mistaken.New Windsor's new, young mayor was simply trying to ensure that the school system pays its rightful share for the costs associated with hooking up the proposed New Windsor Middle School to the town's water and sewer systems.The impasse between the town and school system that dragged on all summer has apparently been resolved; the county government has agreed to forgive a previous $75,000 loan it made to the town, and to pay New Windsor a lump sum of $108,600 to cover the balance of the water-sewer hook-up costs for the new school.
