Letter to the editor: History of Mayor's Achievement Award explained

Thursday, August 30, 2012 by The Press in Opinion

To the Editor,

As a point of clarification, the Coplay "Mayor's Achievement Award" was an award I developed in 2002 when I was the Coplay mayor.

The award is presented to former, retired Coplay elected officials having a long, distinguished volunteer service to Coplay. I felt it was and is important to recognize hard work.

The Aug. 15 arrest of state Rep. Joseph Brennan, D-133rd, on simple assault and DUI charges, and the subsequent press release announcing he would not seek re-election in November should lead residents of the Lehigh Valley to conduct deeper research into who their candidates and elected officials are.

We, the people, should place higher standards on our elected officials, and those public officials should abide by higher ethical and moral standards.

Opinion: Protect yourself from identity theft

Berks-Lehigh Regional Police recently issued a Community Message via Nixle that an individual was going door to door asking questions of homeowners regarding the Parkland and Northwestern Lehigh school districts.

In this case, the man turned out to be a legitimate salesman.

I recently experienced something similar, except the man at my door was asking to see my electric bill.

According to Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda L. Kelly, identity fraud is the fastest growing crime in America, affecting some 9 million Americans every year.
