Delaware Senator Brian Pettyjohn is a good guy. I met him a few times down at Legislative Hall, and he supported House Bill 50, so he’s alright in my book! Tomorrow he is going beyond the usual parade appearance and reading to a live audience!
Sen. Brian Pettyjohn will be joined by a group of local elected officials on Saturday, July 4 at noon on the Circle in Georgetown for the third annual live reading of the Declaration of Independence.
Sen. Pettyjohn, the event’s host, wishes to invite the general public to come and enjoy the spirit of the holiday, and to watch this tribute to our nation’s Founding Fathers.
“The Declaration of Independence is probably our most important founding document,” he said. “We severed the ties to a tyrannical government and started the great experiment which is now the republic that we’ve had for over 200 years.”
Some would say life under Governor Jack Markell is tyrannical, but we don’t have it that bad!
