POSITIONS

We are not playing!

We are dead serious about showing results! 

If we are elected, we will take office in December, 2021 and the December meeting will be a re-organization meeting where board officers will be elected.

The action will begin in January.

At the January, 2022 meeting, we will vote as a unit to pass the following resolution: (Narrowing the Achievement Gap)

To earn a satisfactory rating for the upcoming 2022-23 school year, the superintendent’s performance rating will be heavily influenced by his/her producing data demonstrating a significant narrowing of the Achievement Gap. 

At the January 2022 meeting, we will vote as a unit to pass the following resolution: (No Tax increase in July, 2022)

The Budget to be approved in June,2022 will contain 0 dollars from the Fund Balance and will contain a 0 dollar real estate tax increase.

Talk is what we’ve gotten for years.  We will use the legal authority granted to the Board to act.  

You control the future of the Cheltenham School District and your wallet.  Your actions include voting to elect all 5 Republican school board candidates.  Unless that happens, the changes we promise will not happen.

FINANCE OFFICER

CANDIDATE

THOM ESTILOW

POSITIONS

#1- 100% OF PERSONAL EARNED INCOME WILL BE USED TO AUTOMATE TAX OFFICE

When elected, I will use every earned dollar to improve the automation of Cheltenham Township’s Tax Office.

I will create a separate personal bank account & will keep accounting on every expenditure and will welcome an audit at any time for anyone. One hundred percent of my personal income earned from serving as Finance Officer will be used to automate our Tax Office.

IMPROVEMENTS TO BE MADE

UPDATE ANTIQUATED SOFTWARE & COMPUTERS
The software used by the Cheltenham Township Tax Office has been in existence for decades. I will work with the Montgomery County Treasurer to standardize Tax Collection software for streamlined billing and reporting.

DEPOSIT TAX COLLECTIONS IMMEDIATELY
If you are like me you are wondering why it takes so long for the Tax Office to deposit our payments. Most recently I remitted my Real Estate Tax payment in-person. It took eight days for my payment to clear. Anyone who has served as a Finance Officer or in an Accounts Receivables Department understands the effects of an extended float. Especially when collections are in the tens of millions or more. On my first day the Tax Office will use a Check Scanner to immediately deposit collections to the bank.

COLLECT EIT FROM PHILADELPHIA FOR WORKERS WHO WORK FROM HOME
Almost half of Cheltenham Township’s Wage Earners work in Philadelphia. The pandemic resulted in many of our wage earners to work from home. Even so, Philadelphia collected Earned Income Tax from Cheltenham Township residents. Immediately upon being sworn in to Office I will work to recapture our Township’s fair share of the EIT.

#2- COMPARE THE CANDIDATES BACKGROUNDS

When you compare my background to my opponent’s the contrasts are striking. Both of us have served in noble occupations throughout our careers. Only one of us has a 30-year track record of serving as a Corporate Finance Officer responsible for Accounts Receivables among other duties.

CORPARATE FINANCE OFFICER
I founded, owned & operated multiple business enterprises with millions of dollars of annual revenues for over three decades serving as CFO and Treasurer. Among other duties, I was responsible for Accounts Receivables & Accounts Payables. I can unequivocally state that when my firms received remittances they would be deposited on the same day.

TREASURER FOR NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS
I currently serve as Treasurer for two organizations that have filed with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The duties involve Accounts Receivables & Payables along with regular reporting to Pennsylvania Department of State & Montgomery County.

I have previously served as Treasurer for two organizations filed with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and a non-profit organization in Philadelphia with annual revenues exceeding $2.5 Million.

PENNSYLVANIA ACT 48 CERTIFIED TAX COLLECTOR
In 2017, I received Certification as a Pennsylvania Act 48 Certified Tax Collector.
