inaugural events in Washington, D.C.
By Lora Green
A dedicated Republican campaign worker and student with political ambitions will
be part of the inauguration of the new president on Saturday.
Friday, January 19, 2001
Holly Hay of Sequim volunteered in George W. Bush's campaign when the
president-elect was running for office last year. As co-chairwoman of
Clallam County Young Republicans, she volunteered in political campaigns on the
state and county levels, too. She was elected a delegate to the state
Republican Convention in Spokane last summer.
Then at Spokane, she was chosen as alternate delegate to the National
Convention in Philadelphia. Then 18, she was the youngest delegate or alternate
at the convention.
"She got to spend a lot of time on the floor and even voted on some
measures,'' Holly's mother, Diana, said.
Holly Hay said she learned a lot about the political process at the
conventions and meet many powerful politicians.
As a reward for her hard work, Holly Hay was invited to Saturday's
inauguration in Washington, D.C., and all the festivities that surround it.
She is believed to be the only North Olympic Peninsula person with VIP
connections to the inauguration.
