I just watched Pawlowski's State Of The City Address, and all I can say is, move over Jesus, Pawlowski is here. Considering the elephant in the room, some of his statements were priceless. He praised his administration for providing predictability in government, I hope he wasn't referring to pay to play. Not only did he thank all the little people who rub elbows with the unwashed, he apparently summoned them all there for a shout out. Included in his sermon on the mound were the veterans, the homeless, the Syrian refugees and last but not least, the poor.
Pawlowski, as I have been recently writing, is a case study in delusion. In the speech, in regard to Allentown's revitalization, he said No one bailed us out. That might be a surprise to the Pennsylvania taxpayers, who have to make up the shortfall being used for J. B. Reilly's building boom.
Mayor Ed ended his speech by saying that service should be above self. I believe a forthcoming indictment will show that he put self above service.
although I didn't attend the speech, I watched it live courtesy of WFMZ-69.
