Host Alan Jennings welcomes Easton Mayor Salvatore Panto, Jr. to Lehigh Valley Discourse.
Sal Panto's name is almost synonymous with "mayor" in the city of Easton between his stint in the 1980's and his current term. He is a booster of the city while being one of the most outspoken advocates for regionalism, even when the benefits for the city are not so apparent.
Easton is bustling with creative economic development, its neighborhoods are distinctive, and its perch at the nexus of two rivers beckons New Jersey to experience what Pennsylvania has to offer. (Original air-date 5/1/2014)
