Colón For Bethlehem City Council: Get a Load of This!

Most of the pols who seek your vote will tell you how much they are interested in municipal government, but it's pretty much pure bullshit. Unless they are the center of attention, you'll rarely see them at a public meeting. Michael Colón, who frequently attends Bethlehem's City Council, is an exception to that rule. He unsuccessfully sought appointments to two vacancies on Council over the past year. Now, he will take his case directly to the voters and is asking you to elect him.

A PSU grad, Colón is currently the Coordinator for Volunteer Services at Gracedale, the County-owned nursing home. He has worked as a 911 dispatcher and also did a stint at Bethlehem's Health Bureau. I don't want to know what he did there.

He's a Democrat, too, which certainly is a plus in the Christmas City. He also has ties to Bethlehem's Hispanic community and is a member of the city's Human Relations Commission, whatever that is.

Unfortunately for Michael, several colón cleansers have announced or will do so soon. If he's not careful, he'll fall behind.

"colón cleansers" - Is he gay?

Sorry to disappoint you. I forgot trolls have no sense of humor.

One troll on your site constantly turns everything into something sexual, and can't control the urge to post immature comments to suggest the same. And if it is possible to take a swipe at gays, all the better. It's like 3rd grade all over again. 'Do we play dodge ball at break? Oh look, I said "ball" lol.'

I hope he wins. I understand the "anointed" candidate is some other guy who announced. Apparently like Richutti he was hand picked by Reynolds for his new order.

The entire Bethlehem city government inbreeding thing is getting old fast.

Good for this young guy. I hope people support him. Gay, straight or bi, could care less. Anything is better than the children trying to be adults that are in charge now.

Wow he has a verifiable work history. More than we can say for the current king of the county. Hope to learn more about him.

How invested in the city his he? Is he a home owner? Seems like he is on some boards, what ever that means.
Is he married?
Seems like lots of young single guys running for council.
Does he have a website?

So far as i know, property ownership is not a pre-requisite to elected office. You do not have to be a member of the landed gentry, even in bethlehem. I don't think there is a web page.

Having worked with Michael at the 911 center. He is a dedicated worker, knowledgeable, and caring. He would be an excellent addition to Bethlehem. I wish him all the luck.

ISIS terrorists flung a man from a seven-story rooftop for being gay, then stoned the man to death after the fall failed to kill him.

Gov. Huckabee stated you don't have to tolerate this man as your elected official because he is gay.

Straight from the freak show that is the Republican Presidential Primary

Who cares what Huckabee says? He's a fringe idiot. Who cares if someone is gay? Move along. It's 2015.
