We The People believe Him. Mr. McClure spoke honestly and sincerely from his heart without a prepared speech in his hands. He promised never to go back on his word or his promises. He also vowed to continue to serve the people as the County Executive, as he has over the last seven years as a Councilman.
COAF humbly stands up to support Mr. McClure because regardless of how hot it ever got in the kitchen, we know he always stood up firmly for Gracedale. On many more that one occasion he was the only elected official to do so.
Ironically, it seems today that everyone wants to jump on the Gracedale bandwagon, but Lamont McClure has been driving the bandwagon from day one. He's not just saying I care about Gracedale to get elected, no...he's been fighting alongside of us all along.
John Callahan is a nice gentleman, who by his own admission during his announcement speech at Gracedale acknowledged that he did not feel that Gracedale was his problem as mayor of Bethlehem - We understand that, and that's why we can't support him.
Glenn Reibman is a Gracedale supporter, and we thank him for that. We want him to know that if Lamont did not throw his hat in the ring, we would stand with him for sure. However, we can only support one...and to his credit, Lamont's loyalty to Gracedale and to We The People has not been match by anyone else.
Our involvement with Gracedale over the last several years has made us most knowledgeable about the matter, and that is why we are asking everyone in the County to also show their support by voting for:
Our next County Executive
