Yesterday, I told you that Bethlehem City Council approved a Nazareth football coach for the City's Planning Commission without a peep. I have the following concerns.
1) Impulse Control. - Although acquitted of criminal assault, the fact remains that he knocked out a high school senior during a football game. What happens if something doesn't go his way on the Planning Comm'n?
2) Bethlehem Ties. - Real estate records reveal that Melosky lived in Northampton, not Bethlehem, between 1995 and 2010. When he moved to the Christmas City, he rented instead of buying real estate. First, he was at the Silk Mill. Now he is at some mansion. What does he know about Bethlehem and its development?
3) Planning Background. - He appears to have no background in planning, in any capacity. None. This is a big contrast from the Larry Krauers and Steve Thodes who recede him.
4) Independence. - It is well known that Melosky is a Callahan drinking buddy. How can he really be expected to be independent?
It may very well be that there are good answers to all these questions, but we don't know that unless they are asked. Yesterday, one of my fans provided me with Melosky's email address, so I fired off a letter asking him the questions that should have been posed by Council.
After all, that's why he was there.
If Melosky responds, I'll post it here.
