DE Senator Brian Pettyjohn To Read The Declaration of Independence For July 4th

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. Pettyjohn to Host Reading
of Declaration of Independence

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.”
 
The weather is expected to cooperate this year, but in case of rain the event will take place at the Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department (one block off the circle on South Bedford Street).

Some would say life under Governor Jack Markell is tyrannical, but we don’t have it that bad!
