Panto Rules Out NorCo Exec Race
Panto added, “I do appreciate the support I received from individuals, former office holders and labor unions and their confidence that I have the skill set to bring about the changes needed to move our county forward.“
I happen to be one of the people who encouraged him to run, but respect and actually admire him for his first love - Easton.
Community service, historic preservation and a desire to make Easton a better place is why he shied away from becoming a Superintendent of a public school district.
“Because of my love of education, a Superintendent’s position would be the only position that could entice me to leave my position in the city.” Panto holds a Master's Degree from Lehigh University in Educational Administration. He is a frequet guest in classrooms, especially with the younger children.
But Panto stated that “our city is on a path of growth and continuous improvement. To divert my attention away from the city at this time would be a disservice to the people who placed their confidence in me during the last election."
