We now have a race for Bethlehem Mayor this fall, at least on paper. It is tough to get elected if you are not a Democrat but it is not impossible. Four years a Republican was elected Controller.
Former Moravian Academy teacher Bruce Sigmon has filed petitions to run as an Independent for Mayor. Running as an Independent may actually make more sense than running as a Republican in the city of Bethlehem.
Mr. Sigmon seems to be off to a languid start. He said he will not really begin active campaigning until sometime in August. I have no idea what his positions are but I am willing to listen, given my disappointment in the Democratic Nominee.
But, first and foremost I care about moving this city forward and I will vote for the candidate who meets or comes close to my expectation of the type of leadership I want for my city.
I am open and ready to listen to both Mr. Sigmon & Mr. Donchez and if both disappoint me I will write in myself.
