From Coal Cracker to Code Cracker

As a Bethlehem housing inspector, the mere mention of Suzanne Borzak's name was enough to strike fear in the hearts of many a landlord. She had a reputation for being tough, but fair. Now she's Bethlehem's new Zoning Officer, and attended her first meeting on March 28.

A proud coal cracker from Schuylkill County, Borzak has 17 years of experience in planning, zoning and code enforcement. She credits her coal region roots with giving her a strong work ethic.

"I'm still a coal cracker," she said during a break in the testimony, as her piercing blue eyes looked right through lawyers and engineers.

She's also a grandmother.
