Parade generates more controversy

December 4, 2003

Albany-- The Dougherty County Republican Party will hold a news conference Friday morning, because its float has been banned from the parade.

The party says parade organizers wouldn't even give them an application to enter their float, even though they were in the parade last year.

GOP leaders say its unfathomable that the city will spend so much time and effort and then exclude willing participants from the publicly funded parade.

After tomorrow's news conference, party leaders will deliver a letter to the mayor and commissioners asking to be allowed in Saturday's parade.
