Northampton County Executive John Stoffa's term ends at the end of the year, and two men are hoping to replace him: Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan on the Democratic ballot, and Bangor Mayor John Brown for the Republicans.
Meanwhile, 10 candidates—five Democrats, five Republicans—are seeking five open spots on Northampton County Council.
The Democrats are:
- Christen Borso, a Bethlehem business owner and member of the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission.
- Ronald Heckman, a former councilman and director of human services from Bethlehem.
- Deborah Hunter, a former Nazareth Area School Board member.
- Tom O'Donnell, a former Lower Nazareth supervisor.
- Gerald Seyfried, a former county executive and councilman from Lower Nazareth.

- Peg Ferraro of Bushkill Township, the only incumbent in the race.
- Glenn Geisinger, a businessman from Plainfield Township.
- Hayden Phillips, first time candidate and Hewitt Packard project manager from Lower Nazareth.
- Seth Vaughn, a Bethlehem phyisican's assistant who ran for county council in 2012.
