I was the Solicitor for the Township of Bethlehem and the Bethlehem Township Planning Commission from 1990-2009 in charge of all their legal affairs. I was a member of the Bethlehem Township Planning Commission from 1989-1990.
I am active in local politics, was the Chairman of the Northampton County Democratic Committee from 1994-1998, and a member of the Northampton County Democratic Executive Committee from 1998-2002. In 1972 I was elected in the 18th Senatorial District of Pennsylvania to attend the Democratic National Convention.
