The comments that follow the article are opinions, but the negative replies are disturbing. The honor to be selected Chief Marshal has nothing to do with past politics or being a politician in Bristol. The honor is for what the person has contributed to the town. Dave has done a lot for the town. This honor is not a popularity contest. I can not believe the comments suggesting Dave should decline this honor.
One commenter states he/she will not attend the festivities this year, and I say great; there will be another spot on the parade route for my chair!
