Letter from Mayor-Elect Max Conway

Fellow Dunmoreans,

I first want to say “thank you” to everyone who voted in this last election. Whether you voted for me or not, it is truly a gift that we live in a country where we are all free to voice our opinions and be heard. 

These last three months of campaigning throughout the Borough have given me some of the most rewarding experiences of my life. From establishing a core team filled with dynamic, passionate, and skilled volunteers, to knocking on hundreds of doors explaining my ideas to voters (or as my fiancé, Ally, calls it “giving the longest elevator pitch of all time”), I can honestly say I learned more than I ever thought possible. We ran a campaign based on positivity and new ideas and I think that really resonated with voters in our Borough.

Dunmore means a lot to me, but I am not blind to the fact we have our problems. We have a landfill that is too large, an antiquated downtown, and roads that need paving. We need new leaders in our Borough government that will face these challenges head-on, rather than pretend they don’t exist.

A few of my main goals as mayor are to revitalize Dunmore Corners, finally put in place a road paving plan, and activate a “Community Advisory Board” to ensure we are engaging with the professional and talented residents of Dunmore. 

I plan to come into office in January with a fresh outlook on how to get these things done and make other meaningful improvements to our Borough. Along with a newly energized Council, we can improve Dunmore’s health, safety, finances, and set us on a path to a brighter future.

I have big plans for this little Borough and I think we have tons of potential to move it into the future with fresh thinking and new ideas. I sincerely thank you all for putting your faith and trust in me to move Dunmore forward.

Max Conway 
Mayor-Elect

Max Conway Announces Bid for Dunmore Mayor

Mark “Max” Conway, Jr. has announced his intention to run for Mayor of Dunmore in the Primary Election on May 18. He is a graduate of Dunmore High School and Temple University, which is where he met his fiancé, Ally Gallo. 

Following his graduation, Max worked for Senator Robert P. Casey Jr. after which he ran Congressional campaign finances in California and New Jersey. 

Following his time in politics, Max returned to the area and is now associated with Christian Saunders Real Estate. 

Working in real estate has made him very aware of the challenges facing residential and commercial property owners and Dunmore residents as a whole. 

“Dunmore is at a critical crossroads…from looming budget issues to a health and wellness crisis that has existed for far too long,” says Conway. 

“The time has come to ask ourselves: What kind of a community do we want to be? With the right people and plans in place, we can start to look to a Dunmore that is more advanced, healthy and prosperous.” 

Max is the son of Mark J. Conway and the late Mollie Maloney Conway. He was raised in a large Dunmore family where learned the value of respect, participation in the community and the importance of giving back to that community.   

Max is enthusiastic about sharing his ideas and will be posting his platform ideas on Facebook and discussing them with residents as he campaigns throughout the borough.
