Trump Campaign Boss Conway to Grand Marshal South Jersey Xmas Parade
Saturday's Christmas parade in Hammonton is turning in to a big welcome (almost) home party for Kellyanne Conway.
Conway, President-elect Donald Trump's former campaign manager, is originally from close-by Atco, Camden County, and graduated from St. Joe's High School in Hammonton in 1985.
Conway worked at Hammonton's Indian Brand Blueberry Farms during the summers before attending college and law school in Washington, D.C.
While many are thrilled to have the first woman to run a successful presidential campaign and home-town girl leading the big Christmas parade, some others have reacted negatively on social media to bringing politics in to Christmas in Hammonton.
"We are thrilled that Kellyanne was able to take the time to come back home," said Mickey Pullia, a Hammonton Fire Department lieutenant who coordinated the visit by his childhood friend, according to the Courier-Post.
According to the fire department, the parade will start at 7 p.m. Saturday Dec. 10 at Bellevue Avenue and North Liberty Street. It will stop briefly so Conway can receive a key to the town at Bellevue and Central avenues.
