Local political party leaders agree to stand by the joint Letter to the Editor published in 2014 that announced an agreement reached by Los Alamos Democratic Party Chair Robyn Schultz and then GOP Chair Robert Gibson regarding the annual Los Alamos High School Homecoming Parade.
Joint Letter to the editor published in 2014:
The Los Alamos Homecoming Parade is coming up. In order not to politicize a beloved community tradition, our local parties have decided not to participate. We have also asked our candidates not to have entries (as candidates) in the parade.
You’ll see plenty of our local candidates talking to people during the parade and some will probably participate in their other roles as active community members.
While our two political parties don’t always agree on issues, we can agree that Los Alamos is a great community. Both the local Democratic Party and Republican Party want Los Alamos High School students to enjoy their weekend without political signs and overt campaigning in their parade.
Editor’s note: This year’s LAHS Homecoming Parade is Friday, Sept. 16 on Central Avenue.
