Former Republican county exec Jane Ervin, Allentown real estate owner Aris Harris, and former Republican County Commish Cindy Lambert, each made modest donations to Pawlowski.
Quintessential "cover my bets" developer, J.B. Reilly, is part of a private "king-making" group of Republicans. So is Sam Saxton, owner of an Airport Road cemetery; and Roland Sigal, who owns the Tech Bldg. at 11th & Hamilton. Each is part of the "Republican" hierarchy. Each donated to Pawlowski.
Ideologically the biggest surprise is Charlie Thiel, a very conservative R who ran twice for city council, and has been touted as a future mayoral candidate. I'm sure his donation has nothing to do with the fact that his company is the one with the city contract for all those blinking blue surveillance cameras.
