Allentown City Council

Allentown’s Democratic mayoral primary pitted the incumbent and two council members against a political newcomer. The newcomer came out on top leaving the other three politicians to figure out what comes next.

Three of the four candidates who ran — and lost — in the high-profile Allentown mayor’s race attended this week’s city council meeting the day after the election.

Several Allentown officials are accusing each other of using city property or resources to campaign. Now, the same lawmakers want to put a stop to similar behavior in the future.

Allentown City Council recently voted to designate its Redevelopment Authority as a land bank.

Allentown budget talks are still months away, but one city leader is proposing a radical new spending plan.
