ALLENTOWN, Pa. Jim Martin looks back at his soon-to-be 25 years as Lehigh County district attorney, as he announced Tuesday that he will not be seeking reelection.

"It's been a long, successful, happy run at being district attorney," Martin said.

He is the longest-serving DA in the history of Lehigh County a county he also grew up in.

"I have been privileged to serve in this office," Martin said. "I am very appreciative of former County Executive Jane S. Baker who supported my appointment and of the Board of Commissioners of Lehigh County who appointed me to the position in January, 1998."
