'Twas a week or so after the deadline for nominating petitions, and the GPAD Holiday Party offered candidates and volunteers a chance to relax and enjoy the season. On this night we indulged in friendly conversations, good food and camaraderie. Rest up now, folks, because in a few short weeks it will be January. As in January 2020. That means we all will be hitting the pavement for candidates for the 2020 Primary on March 17, and then helping campaigns as we head to Nov. 3, the General Election--a most highly anticipated General Election. But not yet --for now we'll be spending time with our families and friends and praying for peace in our world.
