The Missing Council Member

Once again, Northampton County Council member Lamont McClure skipped out on a Committee meeting yesterday. He blew off a Council meeting, too. Controller Steve Barron told the audience that McClure is in Ocean City. I don't begrudge him some time off, but I have yet to see him put some time in.

Despite his appalling 14.7% attendance record at Committees over a 6 year period, McClure actually ran for County Executive this Spring. His 21.55% performance at the polls is a pretty good indication what voters think about his attendance.

He will be voted out in 2015.

I believe you are correct. His district is now more R than it was, and the Dems now know him.

The Dems will indeed have a tough time keeping the seat. With McClure as the Democratic candidate, it could be a certain take for the R's. Unless they muck it up with some whacked out teabagger.
