We received this welcomed news this afternoon and thought you would all be gleaming from ear to ear to hear it too.
AFSCME District Council 88
Endorses Lamont McClure for County Executive
I was thrilled earlier this week to get word that I received the endorsement of AFSCME District Council 88. This organization has a membership of 15,000 here in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Over 2,000 of those members live in Northampton County. Many of them are the dedicated and hardworking employees of the Northampton County government.
AFSCME and their leadership have acknowledged what the local media and community activists have come to know about me. I was and remain the leader in the ongoing fight to keep Gracedale under the watchful eye of the county. We have seen the threats to Gracedale are still ever present and this endorsement further validates that I am the best candidate to lead Northampton County forward.
I promise to continue to work and fight for what is right and in the best interests of the citizens of Northampton County. I will not let you down and will continue to fight for you and for Gracedale.
I need your vote on May 21st, and need you to tell your friends about my campaign. We have some great momentum and there are more exciting announcements coming as we move toward this primary election.
I appreciate AFSCME's endorsement and all the support I have received from citizens like you as we move towards the primary election May 21st.
