Northampton County’s cities, townships and boroughs combine the best of urban, suburban and rural living.
It’s why this region of Pennsylvania is growing, while others are shrinking. The county’s residents reflect a microcosm of America.
Meet some of the people who exemplify the Lehigh Valley’s diversity of thought and human experience. And, yes, they’re registered voters who plan to vote in the fraught upcoming election.
Who are these voters?
A police union leader who feels he’s got no political home. A third-generation farmer worried about foreign competition. Black small-business owners fighting for racial equality. A Democratic gay couple who built their dream home in a town that flipped to President Donald Trump. A car mechanic disillusioned by America’s two-party political system. A Hispanic Trump voter whose mother won’t speak to him over his support for the president. A teacher in remission from cancer who is navigating a pandemic at work.
