EASTON, Pa. -

Easton Mayor Sal Panto says 'thanks for the support -- but I'm not going anywhere.'

Panto says he's not running for Northampton County Executive.

The current county executive, John Stoffa, isn't running for reelection in 2014.

He's also a fellow Democrat.

Panto says he appreciates the support he's received lately from former officials labor unions and others but he says he never considered political office for any other reason than to help revitalize Easton.
