Mike Fleck Will Not Seek Re-Election to Easton City Council

Mike Fleck with his video guru, Mick Dee
For as long as I've been blogging, I've been picking on political and business consultant, Easton City Council member, Pawlowski campaign manager and occasional lounge singer Mike Fleck. So you can imagine my surprise when he invited me to visit him at his Allentown consulting biz yesterday. Ron Angle warned me it was a trap, and that once I walked in there, Pawlowski would jump out of a closet with a tomahawk. But aside from seeing my picture on a dartboard, the eleven people in that office were polite.

It was an expansive interview, and I'll share those details on Monday. But for now, I want you to know that Fleck told me he has decided against running for re-election to Easton City Council. "I have no desire to be an elected official ever again," he told me.

Part of the reason is his consulting business, which is taking up more and more of this time. Another big reason is his five-year old son, a basketball star in training. He wants to see his son play as he gets older, and I can understand that completely.

Every second we miss is a second we'll never get back.

Fleck added that he and his wife are seriously considering a move to Allentown, since that's where both of them work.

I'll have more on Monday.

I did check my car before leaving Allentown.

Are you going to cover the Westboro Baptist Church's planned protest on Sunday at several Valley Churches? That would be the pinnacle of bottom feeding bloggin'.

What do my Sunday plans have to do with this post? I don't know if I want to attend a function when this hate group will likely not show.

The move probably makes sense. There probably is more of a future for him in Allentown politically and financially. Easton has declined. Its population is down. Its importance and rank is down also. It use to boast a center for finance and law. The banks have packed up and left and so have the lawyers. The government has changed. It's no longer the typical political machine city. Panto is probably the last of the strong mayors to hold office. The city looks more and more like a township or borough everyday. That would not hold much promise for a guy like Fleck who enjoys big party politics.

The Fleckster Fleckmeister should have thought about this long ago. This is a great way for him to bolster his war-chest. I am willing to contribute to his coffers if he promises to:
-1- Never run for office in Easton, again.
-2- Leave Easton and Northampton County for good.
-3- Become Lehigh County's problem. Ahh, I mean move to Allentown.
