Parades: A Great Summer Institution

While the Scott County Republicans are involved in many operational tasks throughout the election season, one of the fun and visible ways we show our enthusiasm is by walking in parades.  This year our central committee member Don Swanson has built a fantastic float with cushioned seats and all of the amenities.
