After a campaign kiickoff event for the House District 27 seat, the Tommy Crangle Campaign moved to the Red Bank Jubilee Parade in Ralph and Ruth Braly's handsome 1957 Chevrolet convertible.
At one point in the parade, the '57 overheated and Mr. Crangle got out of the car, carried his own sign, and worked the crowd along Dayton Boulevard, prompting the following posts to Facebook.
Bobby Wood: Our 57 Chevy convertible overheated in the stop & go procession so Tommy got out and walked with us holding up his own sign. Now that's what I call dedication and determination.
Mike Alder: Poise in the overheat of the moment!
David Till (former Crangle coworker): Expertise and experience in getting things back on track after unexpected difficulties! Tommy was a General Manager in the days before grade inflation, when there wasn't a GM on every corner. He TOOK CARE of business! That's why he was asked to help in Iraq and other situations later. That's why he's the person to elect today!
Judy Baker: Dedication!
Mr. Crangle said, "As a professional engineer, I've spent my career solving problems...when the car overheated, it was obvious to me what I needed to do. It really turned out great, because I got to be closer to the spectators and shake some hands."
