It’s not about Carol but the principle (65)

(65th in a series of posts on candidates for election)

Dana Grubb is a lifelong resident of the City of Bethlehem who worked 27 years for the City of Bethlehem in the department of community and economic development, as sealer of weights and measures, housing rehabilitation finance specialist, grants administrator, acting director of community and economic development, and deputy director of community development.


I know Carol and like her a lot. It’s about the principle of this for me. If a $4,000 contribution from one elected official’s campaign fund to another candidate’s campaign fund is a loan to that candidate, then it should be reflected as such on the report. That’s all. It wasn’t!

  1. There is no place on a 24-hour reporting form to list the type of donation. That is listed on the actual finance report under the last page “Unpaid Debts” Elected officials give donations and loans all the time. There is nothing unethical or illegal. It’s really a shame that someone who has worked to make this community better for years did not get to serve and more to the point was maligned for doing nothing wrong, by overzealous people with their own agendas. I guess in today’s Bethlehem only those who can self-fund are considered worthy by some to serve in public office. I congratulate Willie, Michael, and Grace. Good, working-class people who are willing to step up and serve all of Bethlehem.
