On Tuesday, November 7th, Democrats made out well in the local elections, as well as the country unanimously re-electing President Barack
Obama. Former Councilman Mike Schlossberg, who ran unopposed, will represent the 132nd District, replacing the retiring Jen Mann, while Dan McNeill will represent the 133rd District, previously held by Democrat Joe Brennan.
“The people spoke,” said Mayor Pawlowski. “They see that the country is heading in the right direction under President Obama, and that putting Mitt Romney in the White House would be a terrible choice. We also have strong leadership in Harrisburg with Mike and Dan heading out there, they’ll even be sharing on office. They’re going to do great things for the residents of Allentown and the Lehigh Valley.”
Obama took 52% of the vote in Pennsylvania, and 53% in Lehigh County. Kathleen Kane was elected the first woman and first Democrat to serve as Attorney General, while Democratic Senator Bob Casey easily won re-election.
Now that the elections are over, Democrats hope to carry over the momentum and enthusiasm to local Democrats who are up for re-election next year, like Mayor Pawlowski. The local Democratic Party is planning another push to elect as many local Democrats as possible, and fund-raising begins now.
