The meeting between Allentown businessman Nat Hyman and Mayor Ray O'Connell appears to have paid off. According to several informed sources, the field is thinning.
Council member Joshua Siegel, an announced candidate, is apparently dropping out and will support O'Connell. The same is true of City DCED Director Leonard Lightner and former City Council President Roger MacLean. Julio Guridy is also under pressure not to run.
