Allentown, Pawlowski and Molovinsky
Although, The Morning Call denied me equal coverage, I held underreported and unreported news conferences on what would become Allentown's most pressing problems in the coming years. While the paper held interviews and debates with seven Democratic primary candidates this year, they claimed that three was too many when they excluded me from their sponsored debate in 2005.
Back in this blog's earliest beginnings, I was a chorus of one. Even bloggers Bernie O'Hare and Chris Casey assumed that the issues I was raising were just sour grapes on my part.
I will not be reporting on the nuts and bolts of the indictment. To me it's already old news. I will be reprinting some of my early posts. Despite the tone of this post, I take no satisfaction with the current events. Despite all these new buildings, Allentown has been depreciated over the last ten years. Our center city streets have become danger zones. Our schools are failing. Even our famous parks are falling apart.
Below is a reprinted post from June of 2007.
