I hear we are speaking about history this morning.
- “The heritage of the Southside especially was that it was a wildly divergent population.”
- “So what you need to understand about Bethlehem is that it is founded by and large by an immigrant population.”
- From it’s very start it’s an immigrant population community, and it served and it fostered immigrant populations and divergent racial populations for its entire history.”
- “That is our heritage; that is our legacy.”
- “And this is a legacy that can continue to be developed in some strategic fashion.”
- “It’s hard for us to understand — there’s so many social, political, etc. problems that are facing us, but I will just say if history informs anything that we have a strong foundation to be able to address the issues that are facing us today.”
- “We can figure out a way to build on our strengths, which includes our history and our heritage.”
