Allentown City Council seeks applicants for mayor

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - After more than a decade in office, Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski is set to officially resign at 5 p.m. Friday.

When he officially steps down, City Council President Roger MacLean will take over as mayor for 30 days while council looks for a replacement.

City Council will appoint someone to fill the position until the next municipal election in November 2019. That person has to be a Democrat, the same political party as Pawlowski.

If no long-term fill is decided, or if it's a tie, it goes to the courts to pick a replacement.

City Council is taking applications for mayor over the next two weeks.

The applications, consisting of a resume and a statement with reasons of how the candidate would bring value to the city, will be reviewed and interviews will follow. Then council members will vote.

Applications are due by March 23 at 4:30 p.m. They should be addressed to City Council and can be emailed or delivered to the deputy clerk at Tawanna.Whitehead@allentownpa.gov.
