Blood In The Water, Allentown 2017
Ray O'Connell told me that he has received numerous calls telling him that he will only benefit Pawlowski if he runs as a write-in. The Republican's aren't saying that they want their man to win, but instead that nobody should do anything that will enable Pawlowski to win office again. They're saying that Ray should put the city first, not his own ambition; How civic minded of them!
Now, I'm not saying that the Republicans are wrong in their calculations about Ray being a spoiler, but I'm questioning their motive; Is it a better Allentown they seek, or a Republican Mayor for the first time in over a decade?
