CONYERS—Not even the sweltering heat could wipe the smiles off their faces.
Political candidates vying for voters in Rockdale and Newton counties fanned themselves and put on their best smiles as they stomped for votes under the blazing sun.
Dressed for the weather, candidates and their campaign teams wore T shirts, shorts, sundresses, straw hats, caps, and sunglasses at the Democratic Party’s “Fun Day,” which was held at Pine Log Park in Conyers.
Hosted by the Rockdale County Democratic Party (RCDP), the Rockdale and Newton Chapter of the Georgia Federation of Democratic Women (GFDW) and the Young Democrats of Rockdale County, the July 7 family-friendly event was an opportunity to show solidarity among all Democratic groups in and around Rockdale County, said Tisa Smart Washington, RCDP chair.
“We (GFDW and Young Democrats) have been working together all year, and we plan to continue working in Rockdale and across county lines to ensure our incumbents are re-elected, our candidates elected and our President makes it back to the White House for four more years.” Washington said.
The host organizations made sure the kids had a good time, providing them with free cotton candy, a bounce house and entertainment.
There were also free hot dogs, chips and cold drinks for everyone who attended—and the Cuban shuffle for those who danced to beat in the heat.
