Gadfly is researching the history of the Bethlehem Charter Commission for the next “Bethlehem Moment.”
Here is the newly elected group — November 13, 1958 — that gave us our current Mayor-City Council form of government.
Elaine Meilicke was the top vote-getter.
Not all that long ago — any connections with these folk we should know about?
Charles Donches is not related to our Mayor but is the father of Steve Donches, who was head of the National Museum of History.
An interesting story here, but you’ll have to wait for the “Moment” to hear all about it!
