Allentown Rumor Mill: Pawlowski Headed to Wolf's Lair

Michael Molovinsky yesterday mentioned that Allentown's former Police Chief, Roger MacLean, has switched from Republican to Democrat, and is seeking an appointment to Peter Schweyer's seat on Allentown City Council. He's joined by Stephen Walker, Jeff Glazier, Anthony Toth, Daniel Benitez and Dennis Pearson.

What I find interesting about Molovinsky's report is his contention that MacLean is a likely mayoral candidate. It makes sense because this gets his name out there, even if he is passed over in favor of Jeff Glazier.

My sources tell me that Glazier already has the appointment to Council. He's a Pawlowski puppet and can be counted on to do as he's told.

But if MacLean runs for Mayor, it is likely he will defeat Julio Guridy, who has made no secret of his mayoral ambitions.

The other rumor I'm hearing is that Pawlowski, who initially thought he'd be the next governor and then threw his feeble support to Rob McCord, is going to the Wolf's lair. He'll be leaving Allentown for the land of midnight payraises. Guridy will get himself appointed mayor, but he will never win the race against MacLean.

I think it's unlikely that Ed P will end up in Hburg.

Ed's work is finished in Allentown. Time for him to move on. He will do well in the Wolf Administration. More NIZ's for everyone, except for the lilly white suburbs.

Hope Chief runs.

Ed would be nutz to go to Harrisburg. He has things too cushy here in A-town.

Tis an interesting place King Edwin finds himself.

The longer he stays in Allentown, the more unelectable he is on a state-wide basis. But he's already unelectable on a state-wide basis because he has the personality of a slug and is one of the most unlikeable people I've ever met.

So what does he do? Chase pensions.

A smart move on his part.

Go Maclean Go

Banker, It does make sense. If he spends just 5 years in H-burg as Sec'y of DCED or General Services, he gets a second pension. He does not really have to move, either.

Next Mayor? think Mary Ellen Koval.

"More NIZ's for everyone, except for the lily white suburbs"

Been to a hockey game at the $ 177.1 million dollar rink?

Don't see too many "people of color" at those games, does one?

What is this again about "lily white suburbs"?

Please elaborate.

Isn't J.B. Reilly the one making all the money as a result of the Free Money Train known as the NIZ?

Doesn't JBR live in one of those "lily white suburbs"?

Why would "NIZ's for everyone, except for the lily white suburbs" be such a great idea?

Please elaborate.
