Community Activist


Since 1973 Dennis Pearson has been the voice of the east side. As President of the Neighborhood Association for decades, and a coach, his tireless efforts are known to several generations. Mr. Pearson has a masters degree in urban and social studies and also substitute teaches. Currently he has offered his vast experience to fill out a term on the County Commission. Anybody familiar with his on going analysis of Allentown's budgets and tax ordinances, knows his experience is an opportunity county residents cannot afford to miss out on. Although he has submitted an official condensed resume to the county, please check out his decades of service on the following site; http://www.pearson4pa133.com/Biography.html
The above photo was taken in 1983, when a younger Dennis attempted to hold Mayor Daddona to a campaign promise.

UPDATE: I received an offline message exploiting Dennis's interest in space exploration. Although I do not share that passion, I find it refreshing to have a candidate for appointment with a wide palette of interests. Here is a man of the neighborhood groups, of the crime watches, straight forward, sincere and devoid of the plastic phoniness of cookie-cutter politicians.

MM, Do you have any pics of Kevin Easterling?

bernie, please note that the picture of dennis is when he tried to present mayor daddona with a sleeping bag, to sleep on klines island (sewage plant), because daddona claimed it didn't smell. so while the pearson picture is of an activist already on a mission 25 years ago, the picture of easterling is a studio portrait. a picture's worth a thousand words.

bernie, although you have amused yourself roasting dennis over his interest in the space program, i hope your efforts don't have consequences here on earth. i have seen dennis save the taxpayers' money numerous times by finding errors in budgets and ordinance language. his longterm devotion to detail and the concern he has shown for his neighborhood's welfare are qualities seldom seen in our officials.
