Brad Osborne loses race for Lehigh County Executive

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Republican Brad Osborne came up short in his race for Lehigh County Executive losing to Democrat Phillips Armstrong.

Osborne, a businessman, former South Whitehall Township, and Lehigh County Commissioner, bested Lehigh County Controller Glenn Eckhart in May and the two vowed to work together to "end a 12-year-reign of Democratic control" of the Lehigh County Executive seat.

On the campaign trail Osborne said he wanted to develop a five-year plan to make government effective.

"One of the things I'd like to emphasize is my background, which has prepared me for this position and the things that we can accomplish if we work together," Osborne said.

Ultimately, voters felt differently and voted Phillips Armstrong into the position.
