Ed Pawlowski is the mayor of Allentown, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, in the United States. He has held this office since January 2006.

Pawlowski is a Democrat. A Chicago native, he holds a Bachelor of Arts from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and a Master of Arts from the University of Illinois.[1]

He served as Director of Community and Economic Development for the first three years of the administration of previous Allentown mayor Roy C. Afflerbach, but resigned in protest over a budget dispute.[1] After Afflerbach decided not to run for re-election in 2005, Pawlowski decided to run to replace him. After winning a three-way Democratic primary, he won 59% of the vote and all Allentown precincts against Republican nominee and former mayor William Heydt and independent Michael Molovinsky.[2]

He is a member of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns Coalition[3], a bi-partisan group with a stated goal of "making the public safer by getting illegal guns off the streets."

In 2009, Pawlowski was elected for a second term as mayor.
