When we say first, let it be understood that we feel that all three democrats running for the office of County Executive bring something unique to the table, however, only one stood alone on the Gracedale sale issue...And that was Lamont McClure. No one can argue that point!
When the time comes to Vote, remember that none other fought for Gracedale like Mr. McClure did. He stood firmly on the rock of truth. He presented facts that could not be disputed. He was mocked and he was ridiculed, but he took the punishment that came his way. He didn't complain, and he didn't collapse. He served us well.
The foes of the County would have you believe that Mr. McClure has a terrible committee attendance record, but that just isn't true. Because of his work responsibilities, he attends (just like us) many of the committee meetings on-line (they just don't take attendance on line), and when he attends the Council meetings, he is prepared with questions that make sense based on his on-line attendance.
How do we know that? Because while we do not physically attend all committee meetings either (we attend on-line as well), we do attend council meetings regularly (our record is excellent), and we have witnessed Mr. McClure first hand (during Council meetings) represent us over and over again.
Mr. McClure promises to:
- Maintain and Provide for the Future of Gracedale
- Preserving and Protecting Open Space and Environmentally Sensitive Land
- Investing in Economic Development so we continue to enhance and improve the quality of life in Northampton County.
...for County Executive
