Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski announces his resignation during a news conference outside his home on Thursday, March 8, 2018 in Allentown, Pa. Pawlowski said he will step down at 5 p.m. Friday from the job he's held a dozen years. The 52-year-old Democrat has been under intense pressure to resign since jurors convicted him last week on charges that he traded city contracts for campaign cash.
