LVEDC is excited to announce an upcoming County Executive candidate forum on economic development on Tuesday, October 17, from 8 – 9:30 a.m. at Coca-Cola Park (club level).

All four candidates running for County Executive in Lehigh and Northampton counties will be present to discuss their thoughts and ideas as they relate to jobs and economic development in the region. This is not meant to be a debate as much as a sharing of thoughts and ideas in response to questions from the stakeholders in economic growth and job creation in the Lehigh Valley. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Chris Borick, Director of the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion.

Northampton County:
John Brown (R)
Lamont McClure (D)

Lehigh County:
Phillips Armstrong (D)
Brad Osborne (R)

Please join us to hear from the candidates. Registration is required and space is limited. We ask that you please register through the form below.
