Fed Ed's Picks In Allentown Races
Last week, in the middle of a student walkout in Allentown, Pawlowski instructed fellow Democrats to work against popular school board President Bob Smith. In 2010, Bob Smith seriously injured himself when he wrapped his arms around a suicide jumper as she hurled herself off a roof. He broke her fall with his own body.
Christian that he is, Pawlowski told Democrats that Smith is no longer "right in the head." This is typical of the way he speaks about others behind their backs, something I'm sure the feds have learned from reviewing hours of recorded conversations.
Later in the week, from his Facebook page, Fed Ed plugged the City Council candidacies of Candida Affa and Jeff Glazier. He also is backing Mary Ellen Koval for Controller and Audrey Mathison for the school board. He backed these candidates in the primary, too, along with Charlie Thiel and Elizabeth Martinez in the school board races.
People backed by Pawlowski have became his rubber stamps. That's why voters should think before pulling the lever for anyone he supports. In the school board race, Scott Armstrong and Bob Smith have stood up to Pawlowski so long and so often that they deserve election for that reason alone. On City Council, you'll never find a better watchdog of finances than Lou Hershman. And Roger MacLean, the City's former police chief, has first hand experience dealing with Pawlowski's betrayal of the public trust, which started in his police department. Finally, Steven Ramos would be an actual controller, unlike the rubber stamp wasting space in that office now.
Are the people of Allentown finally awake? Will they continue to allow bluebloods like J.B. Reilly or Sy Traub to rob them to give to the rich?
Stay tuned. Election's just one month away. If you don't register now, it's too late.
