I’ve been outspoken in this space about why I think the City’s deal with Delta Thermo Energy is bad business, bad politics, and bad environmental policy.
Dan Poresky wrote an opinion piece for the Morning Call last week outlining the issues. I encourage you to read it. It was one of the six most-read pieces on the Call‘s website last week. Word is that there will be a response from a city consultant forthcoming in the pages of the Call.
Lehigh Valley residents may know Poresky as the founder of the uber-successful Dan’s Camera City near 15th Street in Allentown. He’s also the man behind the One With the Earth symbol.
Here’s a picture of Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski (center) with Dan’s symbol in 2006 addressing climate change :
His Honor and Dan aren’t in harmony on the DTE issue, and, frankly, I don’t think Allentown residents are sold on the process that brought this deal to the City. I know I’m not.
