As Allentown Turns
In 2014, I did a series of posts on what I called Life After Pawlowski. I interviewed and featured both Sam Bennett and Charlie Thiel, who were both interested in the top office of city hall. An article in today's Morning Call also examines the contenders emerging since the Pawlowski scandal. I have decided to label the Pawlowski situation a scandal, because he has yet to be indicted, despite being incriminated. Two more likely candidates have joined the field: County Commissioner David Jones announced for the office, and City Councilman Daryl Hendricks issues no disclaimer on his ambition. The main theme of the paper's article is that Pawlowski himself may well run again, assuming he's still on this side of the iron bars.
The Morning Call has their regulars that they go to for what they consider expertise. For local political analysis, they call on a Muhlenberg professor. The professor thinks that Pawlowski could possibly be re-elected, despite the scandal.
today's post was delayed by a slowdown by the blog's production department, negotiations are on-going.
