I was very surprised when Allentown installed a stoplight on Lehigh Street for the Bennett Toyota dealerships. Years ago I lived on a very dangerous intersection which has numerous accidents, including fatalities. I was told how complicated it was to convince Harrisburg of a stoplight's necessity.
Bennett was one of the largest contributors to Mayor For Life Pawlowski's current campaign. He kicked in about 10% of Pawlowski's war chest, which at about $100k, led the candidate pack. On Sunday night Pawlowski had a pricy campaign commerical on CNN's popular Anthony Bourdain show, Parts Unknown.
Today Allentown enters parts unknown. It is not my habit to announce the next day's blog topic. However, tomorrow I will discuss today's winner and loser. Hopefully, the loser will not be Allentown.
