Parade Season has Begun
The Johnson County Republicans were out in force for the first big parade of the summer on Friday, June 9 at North Liberty Fun Days.
Over two dozen Republican volunteers enjoyed the great walking weather -- handing out candy and stickers, sporting Nussle-Vander Plaats or Leach t-shirts, and showing their support for our Republican team. (Jim Leach's feathered headbands were saved for the hearty souls who braved the rain and cold in Kalona on Saturday).
In addition to the volunteers, County Supervisor Candidate Rich Benn was driving his appropriately-hawkeye-colored car, and fellow County Supervisor Candidate Alan Curry was walking the route greeting voters.
As always, North Liberty had a huge turnout along the parade route with kids and adults of all ages taking part in a great community tradition.
