Peace in Politics
Why will this Return Day be more special than others? “We’ve got our greatest chance of having a vice president-elect and possibly a president-elect attend,” says Delaware Public Archives director Russ McCabe. Return Day, November 6 this year, is the day election results have been announced in Sussex County for more than 200 years. Today, winning and losing candidates parade together to make peace after their campaigns. Meet at The Circle in Georgetown about 1:30 p.m. for entertainment, receptions by the candidates and more. Former Governor Russell W. Peterson will serve as Grand Marshal. “He will be remembered 100 or 200 years from now as a pioneer and a protector of the environment,” McCabe says. “That he could be here for Return Day, 40 years after he was elected, is extraordinary.” If you want a free roasted ox sandwich, McCabe suggests that you line up early. “They’re pretty much down to the gristle by 4 p.m.” —Maria Hess
