changes being recommended by Premier Healthcare Resources, Gracedale's newly appointed private manager. Ron Angle and Mike Dowd, despite losing races for their District Council seats, were there, and participated. But Council member Lamont McClure, who won, was MIA.
For years, I've been nailing McClure for his pitiful attendance at committee meetings. Recently, Morning Call columnist Bill White chastised him as well. McClure's opponent, Matt Connolly, raised it during a LWV debate. Voters elected McClure anyway, at least unofficially.
During the campaign, McClure portrayed himself as the Champion of Gracedale, but was nowhere to be found during a meeting in which its new manager was providing a preview of its recommendations, as well as their cost.
We get the government we deserve.
