The residents of Alburtis should be proud. They have successfully elected the biggest douche possible to serve on their council.
And, when I say douche. I mean douche.
Read our first article about Kyle Bower (FACEBOOK PAGE), who was elected to council despite… sigh… being arrested for being drunk and throwing rocks at his gf’s house?
Seriously Alburtis? And you wonder why no one takes you seriously.
Kyle Bower will become one of the youngest elected officials in the Lehigh Valley next month when he takes a seat on Alburtis Borough Council, despite criminal charges he’s facing in Lehigh and Berks counties.
Bower, a 19-year-old Democrat who said before the November election that he wouldn’t accept the $1,875-per-year position because of his legal trouble, has since changed his mind, saying he doesn’t give up on something he wants. He has not been convicted of a crime.
“I’ve been talking to my parents and friends and family. It’s something, at the end of the day, that I shouldn’t let up,” said Bower. “I take this seat with my head held high and with a good standpoint on things. I’ll do what I can to better the community.”
In addition to tending to the business of the borough of 2000-plus residents, Bower will have to defend himself against misdemeanor charges that he stalked his ex-girlfriend in Macungie in July. He referred to those charges as “petty.”
In a separate incident a little more than two weeks before he was elected, Bower was charged in Kutztown with resisting arrest, escape and giving police false identification, all misdemeanors, as well as public drunkenness and purchasing alcohol as a minor.
“It was pretty much just a situation that involved drinking. That was pretty much it,” Bower said, adding “everyone deserves a second chance.”
It was the third time he’s been arrested since 2010, court records show. All three cases allegedly involved alcohol, according to police. At the time of the latest arrests, Bower was enrolled in a probation program for non-violent, first-time offenders after being charged in November 2010 with escape, a misdemeanor, and purchasing alcohol as a minor, a summary offense. Typically, those enrolled in the program have their records expunged if they successfully complete the program. SOURCE: The Morning Call
