Supporters and friends gathered around Lehigh County Executive Tom Muller for what was thought to be a campaign kickoff at Brookside Country Club, Lower Macungie Township.
However, just minutes into his speech, Muller announced he would not seek re-election for a second term.
“As great as this chapter of my life has been and continues to be, it will come to an end this year,” Muller said at the event. “This is not the kickoff of my campaign tonight. I know that will come as a surprise to most of you.”
Muller explained the reasons for his decision.
Especially important during this time of uneasy relations between some citizens and police in this country, State Police Troop M sponsored its annual Camp Cadet at Camp Fowler, Orefield.
This year, 91 campers ages 12 to 15, checked in for a week of structured activities aimed at re-creating actual state police training.
The campers focused on discipline, self-esteem and teamwork.
Activities included K-9 and radar demonstrations, visits from a state police helicopter, as well as representatives from the FBI and Secret Service.
