In Ed Pawlowski's stump speech for Governor, he talks about the transformation of Allentown, and the four thousand new jobs he created in the city. Talk about miscounting chickens before they're hatched!!! Try as I may, adding up the announced new companies, I cannot even exaggerate it to 1000 jobs, but I'm not running for Governor. Anticipation alone hasn't earned downtown business owners one extra dollar. Although Pawlowski and Associates keep harping about the restaurant revival, several expensive ventures have already failed. I can tell you that the street life and people surrounding the Arena District are harder than ever. I believe that Pawlowski is running now, because he knows that the anticipation is better than the reality.
