Clay Aiken – Education: A Hot Topic In North Carolina


On Sunday evening, Clay Aiken was one of five featured democrats at a political rally.  Held at the Fortnight Brewing Company, Clay joined four Wake County Commissioner Candidates to listen to the needs of  Wake County citizens and share their vision for the future of the county.

The event was put together by Jeff Tippett, a Raleigh political strategist and business leader.  Mr. Tippett just launched a new company  that helps political campaigns.  It is called Targeted Persuasion.

In his press release, Mr. Tippett said:

Unlike many political rallies, I designed this event to be fun, casual, and family friendly. With craft beer, food trucks, and a band I believe families will have an enjoyable time as they discuss matters of great importance to District 2 and Wake County. This is the perfect opportunity to talk face-to-face with the candidates.

From all the pictures and messages on social network, it seems the event was a great success.

Columbus Day is a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the New World on October 12, 1492.  Originally observed every October 12, it was fixed to the second Monday in October in 1971.

In many parts of the United States, Columbus Day has evolved into a celebration of Italian-American heritage. Local groups host parades and street fairs featuring colorful costumes, music and Italian food. In cities and towns that use the day to honor indigenous peoples, activities include pow-wows, traditional dance and lessons about Native American culture.


Are you doing something special for Columbus Day?
