Schweyer: Allentown mayor should resign

State Rep. Peter Schweyer, D-Lehigh, released the following statement on the indictment of Allentown Mayor Edward Pawlowski:


“As someone born and raised in the city of Allentown, someone who has dedicated my entire adult life to serving the people of my city and is proud to follow in the footsteps of my father and his 33 years serving the city of Allentown, I am truly dismayed and saddened. Ed Pawlowski should tender his resignation as mayor immediately if he truly values Allentown and its people.


“City Hall needs to be a place where government works to move Allentown forward so it can remain an amazing place to live, work and raise a family."
