No Surprises in LV4All Endorsements

Lehigh Valley For All holds itself out as a political organization that promotes "healthy discourse between everyone in the Lehigh Valley so we can get a fuller understanding of each other and our political system." That's a lie. The truth is that it is a left-leaning Democratic organization whose definition of  "everyone" is limited to those who share its "progressive" views. It has been completely intolerant of voices of moderation within the Democratic party. This is revealed by its latest round of endorsements in this year's municipal races. 

Most of these are good picks. Candidates like McClure or Armstrong have no far-left opponents, so they're safe. But the Allentown picks are disgusting. Transplant Ce-Ce Gerlach, whose only real skill is campaigning, was picked as Allentown Mayor over Ray O'Connell, Matt Tuerk and Julio Guridy? Ce-Ce gerlach actually voted against accepting a grant because it was going to the police department. And for City Council, it's Justan Parker Fields and Patrick Palmer. Fields just got around to using his actual name,while Palmer lists no job. But they are both accomplished demagogues.

My grandmother always reminded, what does one expect from a pig but a grunt. Yawn.

Bernie who runs this outfit? I went to the website and FB page, can't find any organizers.

I don't like anonymous pages.

Thank you.

And there's your answer on Ce-Ce. Dave Harrington is a far left liberal, that's why she got the support even though as you have pointed out many times, she is woefully unqualified.

Did this outfit really endorse Ce Ce Gerlach ? Did They talk to Her ?

Do I recall correctly that this Justan character has a criminal history and is as quick to make baseless accusations of racism as Mark Smith?

Amy Zanelli is being sued for custody in Northampton County and is being “represented” by Dave Harrington.

Dave Harrington is the President of LV4ALL.

Interesting endorsement - not at all biased and completely free of identity politics...
