Protest Planned Over Eichenwald Reform Delay
Robert Trotner is an attorney, Internet radio host and good government activist who was advocating campaign finance reform long before the feds visited Allentown. Upset by the news that City Council intends to delay a Jeanette Eichenwald bill to provide for more oversight over Allentown contracts, he has scheduled a protest outside City Hall on Wednesday, between 5 and 6 pm, ending just before a city council committee is scheduled to meet. "They had agreed to consider Bill 39 to stop the Pawlowski administration from continuing to hand out illegal crony contracts tonight but are now reneging. Council needs to be accountable as the People's Bulwark against Pawlowski corruption."
