I Never Thought I'd See the Day, Part I
Blakely Borough council last week voted 7-0 to take Bob Mellow's name off a park along the Lackawanna River in Peckville. To get you up to speed, Mellow is the former state senator who admitted to stealing taxpayers money. He's now in trouble, on the state level, for allegedly taking bribes to push turnpike contracts to companies that greased his palm.
I don't know any Blakely council members, so perhaps I shouldn't say I was shocked, but shocked, I was. It's not like people around here to turn against their own, even if they are thieves.
Other organizations need to follow suit, and you know who you are.
