Sam Bennett

“At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished… it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.”

– Denzel Washington

What our campaign team has in common is a passion and commitment to Allentown. Not political operatives, but rather hard working individuals who want to make a difference for the city they love.
