Rumor Mill: Spadoni Asked to Resign
Bethlehem Attorney Chris Spadoni, who has served as Solicitor to City Council for the past 17 years, has been asked to resign, according to inside sources who asked not to be named. Spadoni himself declined comment, and I have emailed Council President J. Willie Reynolds for confirmation.
In addition to his municipal work in Bethlehem, Spadoni has served several other local governments, including Easton and Northampton County. He has also been an assistant District Attorney and was Chief Public Defender for four years.
As their Solicitor, Spadoni could advise Council that any decision to terminate him must be made in public. A back room decision to replace him would violate the state Sunshine Act.
