Former Wilson Borough Mayor Ken Dunn Visits NorCo Council

Peg Ferraro and former Mayor Ken Dunn
Former Wilson Borough Mayor Kenn Dunn, now a resident at Gracedale, paid a visit to Northampton County Council last night. Peg Ferraro picked him up at the nursing home and ferried him to the courthouse. "Gracedale saved my life!" he told me when I met him in the parking lot. He was there to let Council know what Gracedale had done for him.

He was in good spirits, as you can see in the photo above, and had no problem walking into the building  I had a pleasant conversation with him, as he told me stories about long-time public servants like Gerry Gross, who may be in his last term as Mayor in neighboring West Easton.

"I really respected Gerry," this Republican told me about a Democrat.

Unfortunately, when Dunn was invited to speak, he had some sort of episode. I called 811, which is actually the 911 center, and an ambulance was dispatched. In addition, three well-trained Deputy Sheriffs rendered assistance. I was concerned he might be experiencing a stroke.

Fortunately, after a few minutes, Dunn was fine. Paramedics from Easton Emergency Squad thoroughly examined Mayor Dunn and recommended that he go to the hospital because both his blood pressure and blood sugar were elevated. But as much as Hizzoner loves Gracedale, he hates hospitals. He declined, although he did allow Deputies to take him out in a wheelchair.

After that, Peg Ferraro took him back to Gracedale. I gave her an excused absence from last night's meeting, but I'm pretty sure her driving is what got to Mayor Dunn.

There's only three Republicans left in Wilson Borough, and she nearly killed one of them.

All kidding aside, Peg's decision to bring Mayor Dunn down for a meeting was quite thoughtful. She genuinely cares about people.

This story is about Mayor Dunn, not the latest soap operas in West Easton. I intend to weigh in on that soon, and when I do, I'll sign my name. You should do the same.

Interesting that Gracedale would allow a patient/resident with medical conditions to leave the facility without a medical escort. Thank God it turned out ok but it could have been much worse.

Typical Ferraro pandering. Give it a rest.

Rid the taxpayers of the white elephant gracedale and the under worked and over paid unions.

This coward never signs her name.That is why Gracedale is here to stay.

4:42, What an asshole you are. Ferraro was not pandering. She was being nice to one person, theway I've seen her do that sort of thing as long as I've known her. If she wanted to pander, there are easier ways for her to do it.

7:08 I notice that again, you don't say who you are. Your inability to do that should tell you why Gracedale is here to stay.

3:19, The medical condition is called old age. There are numerous residents who go out of the facility. A bus stops there periodically. No one expected the Mayor to have an episode, and he was in fine form up until the moment he got to the podium.

I hope the Mayor is OK. Wilson hasn't been the same since he was in charge.

Ask Ron Angle how nice Peg is. Was she patting him on the back or just looking for a soft spot to stick the knife? Politically, she's as vicious as they come.
