Labor Day Kicks Off Campaign Season

Happy Labor Day!

For a list of local Labor Day events sponsored by labor organizations, click on BFIA’s Friday post here.

Labor Day weekend is the unofficial kick-off of the upcoming campaign season.  Politicos love to say no one pays any attention until after Labor Day. Whether this is true or not, it is a longstanding, firmly held belief.  You can support working people and have fun by attending a Democratic candidate campaign event.  There will be parades, picnics, rallies, ball games and campaign office openings. Enjoy the day while saving Democracy.

Here’s a list of candidate appearances today by candidate in order of time of day.
