In his letter to Northampton County Council, Mike Fleck states, "I can only make two promises, One, because of my experience in local government I will be able to work from day one for the residents of Northampton County. The second promise is that I will not seek election to a fall term on County Council. I view this as a stewardship of the seat and will work hard for the residents, but don't believe an appointment to then seek election next year would be appropriate."
Fleck intends to use Wayne Grube's seat on Northampton County Council as a springboard from which he will launch his next city council race. His resume notes he received a "general degree" from Notre Dame High School. I didn't know high schools awarded degrees. Times must have changed. Currently, he sells furniture at Boscov's. As references, he lists Allentown Mayor Edwin Pawlowski and Easton city council member Sandy Vulcano.
