A group of Saginaw Country residents traveled to Washington for the 2013 presidential inauguration. They watched President Barack Obama as he embarks on his second term.
President of the Saginaw Area Democratic Club Jamie Forbes attended the parade with her parents. It was her second trip to see the inauguration. She went four years ago with her dad, and this time they had tickets.
"I'm pretty sure I got to see Obama through the tinted glass," said Forbes.
She described the trip as energizing.
"I really think that the best part of experiences like this is the people that you meet. We're able to see so many people with like minds and be inspired to go back to our communities and make change," said Forbes.
Forbes met up with a group of about 20 Mid-Michigan residents.
