Michael Schware: The Best Comm'r that Ott and Woodman Can Buy
Schware reports raising $12,335 over the most recent period, giving him a total of $22,935. Of that $10,000 came from GOP Party boss Wayne Woodman, and Woodman's wife, Lisa (Woodman) Scheller. Another $2,500 came from the My Lehigh County PAC, which is controlled by Ott and Woodman.
Schware also reports $13,050 in in-kind contributions from Vote Scott Ott so far this year. This is to allocate costs for Kial Vidic, who is Ott campaign manager.
The Board of Commissioners is supposed to be a check and balance on the County Executive. But between Ott and Woodman, they control roughly 70% of the campaign money and in-kinds going to Schware. There is absolutely no way he can claim independence. He is there to do as he's told.
