Cartwright Secures Grant for Palmer Tp Firefighters

Last week, US Congressman was able to secure a grant for Lower Mount Bethel's Sandt's Eddy Fire Co. This week, he's snagged another one for the Palmer Tp Municipal Fire Station. It's $57,444 for $57,444 Operations and Safety grant. The funds will allow the fire company to purchase supply and attack hoses, including 192 couplings and related equipment. These purchases will improve fire operations and fire safety and will enable them to better serve their community.

“Our nation’s firefighters are called upon day after day to protect American citizens,” said Rep. Cartwright, a member of the Congressional Fire Services Caucus. “As these brave men and women put themselves in harm’s way, we must ensure they are equipped with the best tools possible to do their jobs well, and today’s grants will help meet that goal.”

Someone ought to give Allentown Mayor Edwin "Fed Ed" Pawlowski this message.

Where is Mr. Do Nothing Charles Dent at? I guess doing nothing as always; being a typical establishment politico with a lot of wind and nothing to show for it!

Legislators have little to do with securing these grants. They merely provide the information that these funds are available. They have no influence on determining the recipients. The grants are very competitive, and usually go to the neediest of departments. The amounts awarded are dependent on the financial standings of the department. DCED grants, however, are much easier to acquire, although they are lower in amount.

What exactly did he do to secure the grant ?

So, you are alleging that the fire co. received grants due to the influence of a congressman, these grants are applied for by all fire co. Are you saying if you have the right congressmen you will get a grant and if not you will be denied. Looks like an investigation into corruption should be appropriate. I am dismayed that you approve of Corruption when it suits you.

Don't blame the congressman, blame the asshole in city hall and his administration. Funny, it awful quiet from the Fire Admin on this as well.
