Pawlowski on Pawlowski on Lehigh Valley Discourse

Lehigh Valley Discourse 7/11/13

Ed Pawlowski is on a winning streak:  The Neighborhood Improvement Zone, authored and shepherded through the state legislature by Senator Pat Browne to provide powerful incentives for redevelopment of two key pieces of Allentown, is driving more than $500 million in new development; his proposal to cover the unaffordable pension obligations for city retirees by leasing the city's water system to Lehigh County Authority generated more than $200 million; the Philadelphia Phantoms will be joining the Lehigh Valley IronPigs as the top minor league franchises of the Phillies and Flyers, respectively; his election to a third term as mayor is all but assured, since he secured enough write-in votes to be the candidate on the Republican side as well as his spot on the Democratic side.  Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski will be Alan Jennings' guest this week on Lehigh Valley Discourse.  Listen as Jennings talks to Pawlowski about Pawlowski - what makes him tick, where he's going and how he pulls it all off.  (Original air date July 11, 2013.)
