Brevard County Candidate – Ken Rhoden at Tico Airshow

Ken was out most of the day yesterday (Saturday, 3/10) at the Tico Airshow in Titusville put on by the Valiant Air Command Warbird Museum.  The airshow was amazing, the planes on display were interesting, and the people were very friendly.  Many supporters said “Hi” to Ken Rhoden and his crew who were there meeting people and collecting ballot petitions.  The deadline for the campaign to turn in the petitions is March 19 at noon so if you have some, give Ken a call and he’ll arrange to have them picked up.  If you have not filled one out – there is one on the VOLUNTEER page here that you can download and send back to the Ken Rhoden Campaign at 218 Hibiscus Blvd., Merritt Island, FL, 32952.

Ken Rhoden is a Brevard County Candidate / Seminole County Candidate for the Public Defender’s Office of the 18th Judicial circuit covering both the Brevard County Public Defender and Seminole County Public Defender Offices.

Veteran’s Day Parade – 2011

Ken and a group of supporters entered the Melbourne Veteran’s Day Parade to support local vets past-present-future.  The Vote Rhoden group included a US Army Vet from the 1/7 3rd Infantry “Marne” Division and some civilian supporters.

There were vets old and young all along the parade route along with their families.  The kids especially enjoyed all 15 pounds of candy the group handed out along the New Haven and Oak Street route.  Thank you to Honor America for organizing such a great event.  Freedom is not free and while we should all be proud Americans – we should be extraordinarily proud of our Veterans.  Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
