Willie Reynolds is running against Dana Grub for the Democratic nomination in Bethlehem's Mayoral race. This should be an easy win for him. He's got Mayor Bob Donchez and the more woke members of City Council behind him, along with LV4Some and other progressive groups. But here's the thing. You can only rubber stamp tax hikes so many times before people get fed up. You do yourself no favors by supporting the elimination of four firefighters or by imposing a stormwater fee on top of a tax hike ... in the middle of a pandemic. He claims to be all about affordable housing but it is the City itself that is making Bethlehem unaffordable with the nonstop tax hikes. So Reynolds is slipping in the polls against someone who thinks little things like public safety matter and who has insisted the tax hike could have been avoided and the stormwater fee could have waited. So naturally, he's sent out an ugly mailer about Dana.
Willie compares Dana to Trump, which is kinda' silly. Ironically, it is Willie who insisted on launching his Mayoral campaign at the very moment that domestic terrorists were storming the capital. I guess his campaign was more important than an assault on our democracy.
That's something Trump would do.
