The weather could not have been any better for the 5th Annual Down Home Street Festival in Bonifay, Florida on March 16th. The cold snap that had us all bundled up here over the better part of last week was now over, and the vendors had little trouble setting up their kiosks and pavilions. This was to be a pretty big event, and there was even a couple celebrities present, Sonny Shroyer, “Enos” from the 1980s hit show The Dukes of Hazzard, and the most popular character on the show, “The General Lee”. There was a black-eyed peas and cornbread sampling, bakin’ wars, a classic car show, kids rides, and various kinds of entertainment, from local school choruses and dance classes, to the Zumba class, and local alternative rock bands. Wow! in Bonifay? Right, in Bonifay!
We took this opportunity to get William “Cleave” Drummond’s name out there again this year, since the voting districts switched, and we are now on the west end of Florida’s District 2 instead of on the east end of District 1. While Cleave did get some good press and support on the western end of the district last year, he’s still pretty well unknown in District 2. Bonifay’s festival is just one of many places we’ll be going to to get signatures over the next two years in the race to bring a real person who knows what the people of Northwest Florida are going through on a day to day basis.
So, be prepared to see him at festivals and farmers markets from Panama City to Perry, and from Madison to Marianna, because these are the places that are covered in District 2, and it is time for, not a change… that get’s used too often. Washington, it needs a reboot, and real people are going to be what it takes to wipe the slate of corruption clean from what was set up to be a nation run by real people. Cleave, he’s as real as it gets! Contact him any time, and find out for yourself.
