There is a story in todayâ€™s (Sunday, May 2) Morning Call, written by Jarrett Renshaw, that is a â€œmust readâ€ for anyone who is interested in the politics and the future of Allentown. Titled, â€œMixed track record on grants for Allentown businessesâ€, you can read it for yourself by clicking on the live link.
Itâ€™s a fascinating and discouraging portrait of a city hall and an administration that has become for all practical purposes, a theocracy.
No need to do a recap. Iâ€™d rather you read it for yourself. I will close with the one overriding impression that remained with me after I read the story: If I were one of the city workers who has been laid off, Iâ€™d be furious.
