Allentown's Dignity On The Line
In the last several months I have often referred to my irate women facebook friends, who cannot let go of their rage against Donald Trump. I have also mentioned that prior to this past national election, I have seen little political interest expressed by most of them. However, today's revelation is the most disturbing to me. Despite non-stop Trump criticism, not one of these local women have written one word about the upcoming mayoral election. They are apparently more consumed with this past November than the future. They are apparently more concerned about things that will probably not affect them, than their own backyard.
As I have previously posted, Pawlowski is courting certain segments of the minority communities with favors and promises. With such a crowded field, that could well be a winning strategy. I realize that this is a controversial statement, but anyone who knowingly votes for a candidate tainted by corruption, in return for a few more city entitlements, gets no respect from me.
If the local women, so distressed by Trump in Washington, would devote a few minutes of their time for an alternative mayoral candidate, Allentown could emerge from the primary with some dignity.
