It was really nice of Mr. Callahan to say: "I think Lamont did a nice job in that as a County Councilperson, he did the right thing in Saving Gracedale".

He went on to promise: "And if I am elected County Executive we're going to improve Gracedale. We're going to improve the quality of care at Gracedale, and we're going to make it an even better place for our residents to live and get better, and get home".
He also noted that: "No other County Councilman has ever vote to preserve more farmland, environmentally sensitive land, and open space than I have".
