In 2009, Barack Obama supporter Linda Broadford of Weymouth attended the inauguration festivities in Washington, making the trek in a van with eight other activists from Massachusetts. After campaigning for the president’s reelection last year, she expects to be in the audience for the swearing-in ceremony on Monday.
“I’m going with one other person and we’ll connect with another person when we get there,” said Broadford, a member of the Massachusetts Democratic State Committee. “There will be three of us in one hotel room. I’m so happy Obama was reelected. I take so much pride in his reelection. I want to be part of it.”
