What a great time we had participating in the Tim Utz for Minnesota House 41-B campaign’s first Stockyard Days Parade. A total of 22 participated (another 20 were unable to join at the last minute) in the parade walking, interacting with the parade fans along the route, passing out voter registration cards, business cards and candy; quite a lot of campaigning during the parade while maintaining a fun atmosphere for the volunteers.
At 22 volunteers, our campaign parade group was larger than the GOP State Senate candidate Kurt Bills, the local GOP group, and the DFL opponent to Tim. In fact, all three groups were far behind Tim’s location in the parade rotation. Perhaps an omen of the Election Day results or just a coincidence (Tim prefers the aforementioned) in any case Tim was clearly the leader during the New Brighton Parade, and not just in the parade rotation.
Mark your calendars for the 2013 New Brighton Stockyard Parade and plan participating with the then HD41-B Representative Tim Utz.
