Big Tent Event a Success
Saturday morning, Sept. 19, was a cool, sunny day, perfect for KAD's Big Tent Event. Democrats from across Kingwood and the surrounding area came to pick up candidate signs and other political swag. Adding to the morning's fun was having several candidates join us to answer questions and chat with voters.
We are out of Biden signs at the moment but are on the hunt for more! Stay tuned here or on our Facebook page.
