By now, you've probably guessed I can't get enough of this NIZ story. Bethlehem and Northampton County officials are very grateful that I'm dredging in Allentown. Don't worry, I'll be back soon, but not before I get my bottom-feeding fins on a copy of Mayor Edwin Pawlowski's year-end campaign finance report, which is due today.
Speaking of campaign finance reports, among NIZ legislator Pat Browne's 20 top contributors in his 2010 Senate race are the following:
1. Lee Butz - NIZ beneficiary.
2. Joe Topper - NIZ beneficiary.
3. Bill Grube - NIZ Board Member Elec.t
4. PPL - They will benefit in many ways from the NIZ.
There goes that "archaic" thinking again.
