One democrat has thrown his name in the ring for Lehigh County Executive.

Current Lehigh County Director of Administration Tom Muller announced his candidacy Wednesday afternoon in Emmaus.

Muller has spent time working in both the the public and private sectors during his career with companies like Victaulic and Crayola.

Lehigh County Commissioner Scott Ott announced his plans to run on the Republican ticket back in January.

Current County Executive William Hansell, who was appointed when Don Cunningham left, has not announced if he'll run.
