Lions Roar the News: Former Mayor Robert O'Hare to be 2014 Memorial Day Parade

When it comes to community service, there are few jobs more challenging or more

thankless than being mayor of...well...anyplace. But, former Allentown Borough Mayor, Robert O'Hare points

out, there are few jobs more gratifying or more rewarding.

“I loved helping people solve problems,” O'Hare said from his home office this week. “When you're

a mayor, an elected official—or really any kind of person in a position to help others—it's that daily

interaction that has the greatest positive impact. For me, it was that person­to­person problem­solving that was

important.”
