“A lot of people feel dismayed about what’s happening with our government and helpless to do something about it,” Wild told the Morning Call.
Wild believes the skills she has developed over the last 30 years as a lawyer would be an asset.
“I’ve spent my entire professional career dealing with difficult people, negotiating, battling for clients. I think the skills I’ve developed would be an asset,” Wild said.
Wild has reportedly been considering a run for Congress for the last decade, but had been waiting for Dent to either run for higher office or retire.
Wild joins Bill Leiner, Greg Edwards and Laura Quick in the Democratic primary. Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli, Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan, and Bethlehem City Councilman Willie Reynolds are also reportedly considering a run for the seat.
