Simao, Carroll Take Aim at City Council Candidate Mike Recchiuti
Bethlehem City Council candidates Tony Simao and Tom Carroll have been making extensive use of Youtube to promote their candidacies. Their first effort, Open Letter To Bethlehem Politicians, takes aim at Mayor John Callahan's fiscal mismanagement. 985 hits. Their second video, Rubberstamp Reynolds, hones in on J. William Reynolds, an incumbent seeking reelection. 369 hits.
Now they've turned their attention to City Council candidate Mike Recchiuti, in a blast that likens him to Pee Wee Herman. What the video fails to point out is that Recchiuti, who was an attorney with Fox Tobey, is no longer employed at that firm. Ties to that firm were severed in August. His LinkedIn page just states he's an attorney in Bethlehem, with no business address or law firm mentioned. His campaign "biography" is no help, either.
Naturally, I'd love to hear from Mike, and have asked him for his comment. When I get it, I will post it.
