UPDATED:Preliminary reports indicates that at least one new candidate for Allentown City Council, opposed to the water lease, was bluffed into dropping out by an attorney, supposedly Brennan. Who was employing the attorney is unclear. The candidate, Kim Velez, then realized that her decision was premature, but failed in her attempt to be reinstated. There will now be eight candidates for City Council, five incumbents, and three challengers, two of whom are opposed to the water lease. UPDATE: Ms. Velez will retain counsel, and attempt to be reinstated.
