Kellyanne Conway To Lead Hammonton Parade

HAMMONTON — Former area resident Kellyanne Conway will return home Saturday to lead the Hammonton Fire Department Christmas Parade as its grand marshal.
“We are thrilled that Kellyanne was able to take the time to come back home and join us for such a special event. We are so proud of the good work she is doing with the president-elect and look forward to presenting her with a key to the town of Hammonton," Councilman Mickey Pullia said.
Conway served as campaign manager for President-elect Donald J. Trump and was the first woman to successfully manage a U.S. presidential campaign.

Conway attended St. Joseph’s School in Hammonton and worked at Indian Brand Blueberry Farms during the summers before leaving for Washington, D.C. for college and law school.
Pullia, a 30-year member of the Hammonton Volunteer Fire Department, led the local effort to coordinate Conway's visit.

"We had been speaking back and forth with the family and she graciously accepted our invitation to be in the parade," Pullia said. "We couldn't be more proud of her. She's a role model for young girls everywhere - especially my two daughters."

Pullia added that the Hammonton Police Department will be on standby during the parade, but didn't know if Conway would have secret service with her while attending the event.

Conway will be joined by her family in the parade, which is the concluding event celebrating Hammonton's 150th anniversary.
During the event, Conway will be presented with a key to the town of Hammonton and will give brief remarks at Bellvue Avenue and Horton Street.
