Allentown's mayor has jumped into a crowded field for the Democratic nomination for governor.
Ed Pawlowski says he can bring bipartisan cooperation to Harrisburg, where he says Governor Tom Corbett has struggled even with fellow Republicans running the Legislature. More than a half-dozen Democratic hopefuls are expected to compete in the May 20th primary.
They include U.S. Representative Allyson Schwartz, former state revenue secretary Tom Wolf and two former environmental protection secretaries, Katie McGinty and John Hanger. No sitting governor has lost a bid for a second term, but Corbett is widely considered vulnerable.
Pawlowski has been mayor for nearly eight years. In his announcement Sunday, he says his accomplishments include reducing crime, adding 80 police officers and reversing an $8-million budget deficit.
