THE INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE FOR MAYOR OF ALLENTOWN SAYS HE WANTS TO MAKE THE CITY UNATTRACTIVE TO LOW-INCOME RESIDENTS. MICHAEL MOLOVINSKY HELD A NEWS CONFERENCE OUTSIDE A HOME ON WEST LIBERTY STREET TODAY.
MOLOVINSKY SAYS ONE OF THE LARGEST PROBLEMS IN ALLENTOWN IS THE POVERTY RATE. CHANNEL 69 NEWS. SEPT. 9. 2005*
Allentown learned today that it's population became poorer between 1999 and 2005.** That's the good news, I know we became even poorer between 2005 and now. When Pawlowski, as a member of the Allentown Housing Authority, endorsed building the newest public housing project in United States, what's the message there? When Pawlowski, first as Community Development Director under Afflerbach, now as Mayor, uses the Community Block Grants to seed organizations which depend of a flow of new poor people, what's the result? Being an advocate for the poor is morally commendable, but it is no criterion on which any city can sustain itself.
