Where's Waldo Molovinsky?
I have been a citizen participant in local government for decades. Over those years I have championed for and against proposals by numerous mayors and councils. Needless to say to those that know me, many of those efforts were in the against camp.
In 2005, I ran as an independent for mayor. It was at that time I noticed some things about Pawlowski that differed from his public perception. In 2007, when I started this blog, even fellow bloggers Bernie O'Hare and Chris Casey dismissed my complaints about Pawlowski as sour grapes from a losing candidate. In 2014, I ran as an independent for state representative against an eleven term Republican incumbent and a Democrat. I received 13% of the tally in Lehigh County.
I'm not a people person. The last organization I belonged to was the Cub Scouts in 1954. I wasn't at any campaign parties on Tuesday night. I don't play well with officials, bureaucrats or the press. I don't curry favor with any elected officials, nor do I regularly visit them with praise. In recent years my attendance at county, city or township meetings is usually to defend our history against political correctness and sacred cows.
I think that you will find the observations on this blog informative. I only write about those issues with which I have experience and knowledge. I occasionally get calls from people researching a local topic or place that have found information about it here on this blog. My current efforts have gone toward saving historic structures within our park systems. Although I do not accept anonymous comments, comments may be made by pseudonym.
