Branding Candidate Molovinsky

An article on Wehr's Dam referred to me as a blogger running for State Representative. Before that label sticks,  please allow me to identify myself. I'm a long time community advocate, who in recent years has used a blog to help shine light on issues. Long before I had a blog, or even a computer, I was a contributor to the community dialogue. Although a life long proponent of historical preservation, in the late 90's I organized homeowners who felt an unnecessary proposed historic district infringed upon their property rights. Among many other issues in recent years, I turned my attention to the preservation of the WPA structures gracing our communities. Although the article referred to me as a member of the group defending Wehr's Dam, I actually started that effort. Even though Allentown is not part of the 183rd District, I continue to publish molovinsky on allentown, because it is an archive on my activism during the last decade. However, that activism started long before the blog.

MM, They may call you a blogger, but most of us that somewhat read and write look at your blog as an unbiased news source? This being because local news outlets are a one sided advertisement agencies? Bloggers as the establisment refer to the new news outlets are for the most part were the public goes for the truth of the matters?

Here is a tidbit about the south whitehall dam situation. The engineer for the township lists the wildlands conservancy as a client....

rumor in the township building is that Jaindl Land Co and the Wildlands are working together to remove the dam. Jaindl would benefit by then being able to run sewage in a pipe under the jordan the entire length into allentown, opening up his lands for dense development with public sewage. The Wildlands sold jaindl back a farm of his in lower macungie

Morgan and Bond are for removing the dam, Block and Daubert are for saving the dam, the swing vote is Tommy Johns on that board of sommissioners
