Nathan Brown to be the new Lehigh County Commissioner for District 5


The new Lehigh County Commissioner for District 5 will be Nathan Brown.

The Emmaus Borough Councilman will be taking over for exiting Commissioner Mike Schware, who served for six years.

No Democrats ran in the race.

In the borough of Emmaus, Brown has served as the Chairman of Community Relations and Economic Development Committee and as a member of the Public Safety and Public Works Committee.

He beat out John Donches, a Lehigh County Republican Committeeman and well-known face at commissioner meetings, despite Donches receiving an endorsement from Mike Schware.

District 5 includes the boroughs of Emmaus, Coopersburg and Macungie, the townships of Upper Milford, Lower Milford, Upper Saucon, Salisbury and Allentown’s 12th and 13th ward.
