Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski is doing his part of furthering the goals of the state Democratic Party by running for re-election for the State Democratic Committee. Pawlowski is seeking his second four-year term on the committee, whose primary objective is to get quality Democrats elected to office by encouraging registered Democrats to vote and recruiting members to join the state Democratic Party.
Pawlowski also assisted Rob McCord’s campaign for Governor by circulating petitions and capturing hundreds of signatures to help McCord officially get on the ballot for the May primary.
State Committee members are elected every four years at the primary in the year in which the Governor is elected. State Committee members are apportioned to each county based on the percentage of statewide voter registration. They are placed on the primary ballot to be voted in to office like any other elected office in the state.
