Glenn Eckhart — What’s next?

Wednesday, January 8, 2020 by DEBBIE GALBRAITH in Local News

Two-term Lehigh County Controller Republican Glenn Eckhart is looking to the next chapter of his life, after losing the November 2019 election to Democrat Mark Pinsley.

To know where Eckhart is going next, one must look at where he has been. Although he is one who looks to the future, it is clear the past has molded Eckhart into the person he is today.

“I was always interested in politics,” Eckhart said. He remembers the year 1980 when Ronald Reagan was elected president. “I was 13 and thought that was the coolest thing in the world.”
