A great day for Democratic "Fans"
Today marked the start of the 2010 Jefferson County Fair. The Fair began with a incredibly well attended Parade. Our Democratic Team was well represented and warmly received.
Assemblywoman Addie Russel had a great time meeting with her constituents. She was seen on the podium, in the stands and then walking in the parade route. Not a moment was missed by the Assemblywoman to thank the crowd for all the support she's been given over the last few years.
The North Country Democrat also chatted with Brian McGrath who is running in the 122nd Assembly District. Brian's and his team of volunteers could be seen working the crowd. The North Country Democrat was very pleased to see such a warm reception for Brian. Brian's strong show of support from the crowd was real indicator that Brian is well on his way to becoming the next Representative of the 122nd Assembly district.
Sheriff Burns team truly seemed to outpace and outwork many of the other teams on the parade route. It appeared during the parade that the Grand Stand was filled with John Burns Fans. We mean that literally....Fans where everywhere, as you can see in the picture. Sheriff Burns re-election team of volunteers also handed out stickers & balloons for all the kids. The crowd loved him and boy did they show it.
We also wanted to note the honorable mention for the North Countries own Senator Darrel Aubertine. Darrel appeared to be the overwhelming crowd favorite. In fact he received a massive round of applauds when Fair Organizers announced the work that Senator Aubertine did in restoring funding for this historic Fair. The Senator deserves our thanks for all his hard work and stead fast support of our local community.
It was a extraordinary parade and it brought great pride to have such dedicated individuals representing us in Albany.
