Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan is looking to make a move from city hall to the courthouse.

Callahan said he will hold a news conference Wednesday to announce his plans to run for Northampton County Executive.

Callahan took office as Bethlehem's mayor in January 2004. Prior to that, he served on City Council.

He plans to make his candidacy announcement at 3:30 p.m. at Gracedale Nursing Home in Nazareth, Northampton County.
