Ce-Ce Gerlach, Sell-Out
She failed my basic test. She is neither accountable nor transparent.
But she's been very useful for NIZ advocates like J.B. Reilly. On television shows concerning the NIZ, she has often been propped up as an anti-NIZ voice, mostly because her arguments are easily defused. She's been a useful idiot. More informed NIZ opponents like Dr. Steve Thode or Michael Molovinsky are usually passed over.
She now has her reward. On her Facebook page, there's this: "I have been accepted into Desales University to earn my degree in Management & Leadership. Thank you City Center (never thought I'd say that...lol) and Trexler Trust for this opportunity."
Lots of people are oohing and ahhing, many of them the very same people who have spoken out against Fed Ed.
But like him, she is also a prostitute. Crony capitalists J.B. Reilly and the Trexler Trust will pay her college bill at DeSales. She will claim to be a voice of the people, so long as those people are Democrats. But she is now officially a sell-out, a servant of the urban growth regime
Gee, I wonder how anxious she will be now to pursue an appeal in the Allentown School District challenge to the NIZ.
While they crony capitalists play her, she will play the crowd and likely will present herself next year as a candidate for Allentown City Council
