Politics at The Howard County Fair
Politics at the Howard County Fair in West Friendship, Maryland began this morning. As you can see from this picture, I was there before much of the activity began as most exhibitors were just getting set up.
These exhibitors included the Howard County Republican Party. We spent about two hours getting the booth in place and decorated this morning to be ready for the crowds. It would have taken a lot less time, but there were two cars located in our reserved spot for our booth and we ended up standing around for a little while waiting. When all was said and done, I think it came out pretty good.
Because the temperatures are going to be in the high 90s this weekend and into next week, we are giving the people a way to stay cool.
It will be cool to see a bunch of people carrying these around all the fair. I know there were thousands of these ordered. An obligatory shot of me in the booth to show I actually worked this morning.
Meanwhile, our elected Republicans always have their own booth located right near the entrance of the fair in a prime location.
And to show I am fair and balanced, here is a shot of the Howard County Democrats still putting together their booth well after we had already finished.
One non-fair shot from last night’s Howard County Republican Club First Friday happy hour at Ram’s Head Tavern in Savage.
It appeared their were close to 80 people in attendance throughout the night including Delegate Gail Bates, Councilman Greg Fox and a slew of candidates for various offices as well as First Vice Chairman of the Maryland Republican Party Chris Cavey.
