McClure Makes Rare Committee Appearance
Council member Lamont McClure, known for his abysmal attendance record at Northampton County Council Committee meetings, actually appeared for yesterday's open space discussion.
McClure has lost his seat as Chair of the Courts and Corrections Committee. That committee has failed to meet over the past four years despite numerous issues concerning the Home Rule Charter, Administrative Code and never-ending issues at the jail.
Council President Peg Ferraro has replaced McClure with Mat Benol.
All Council members are encouraged to attend committee hearings. Yesterday's Open Space Committee hearing included Ferraro, McClure, Scott Parsons, Glenn Geissinger and Bob Werner.
