“Signing with a pseudonym is not the act of a brave person” (56)

(56th in a series of posts on candidates for election)

Election Day is Tuesday May 21

That’s tomorrow!

John Marquette is a retired librarian/archivist, author, historian, and a resident of Bethlehem. His current project is focused on the restoration of the interior of the Archibald Johnston Mansion in Housenick Park. 


A little less than five percent of Michael Colon’s contributions ($200 of $4360 as of the report listed ending 5/6/19) were from the Friends of J. William Reynolds. McNeil of Pa. donated an additional $100. I note a contribution of $1000 (23%) from Friends of Bob Donchez PAC on 2/16/19. Each candidate had a few major contributors, with the exception of one who appeared to be entirely self-funded.

Reputations are precious. Referring to contributors as “minions” while signing with a pseudonym is not the act of a brave person.
