Chalk Aberdeen up for Bernie Sanders:
At least that was Amy Dunlavy’s plan tonight. She recruited her brother Joel Dziak…
…and some other Aberdeen friends to promote the Vermont Senator’s campaign for President in chalk on the pavement around Melgaard Park.
Tonight’s event was the second chalk party Dunlavy has organized. The first was last Saturday, which went great until overnight rains washed their work away. (Tonight’s forecast: mostly clear, with a 2% chance of rain.)
Why are these Aberdonians hitting the pavement for Bernie Sanders? Here are unscripted, unrehearsed responses to that question from Dunlavy…
…and from Dziak:
Dunlavy says she hopes her group’s chalk efforts will provoke more political conversation around Aberdeen. She also says that blue in her hair stays until Bernie wins in 2016.
Tonight’s techno-philosophical question: how different is chalk on a sidewalk from electrons on a blog?
