Tired of being over taxed? Join Chairman of The Lucas County Republican Party, Jon Stainbrook, Wednesday, April 15th from 11:30am to 1:00pm at International Park for Toledo's Tax Day Tea Party!
Prizes will be given for the best patriotic outfit and for the best protest sign.
If you have any questions, please contact the Lucas County Republican Party at 419-482-0565.
We look forward to seeing you there!
While support from members of ALL political parties is welcomed, I need to point out that this is NOT a function of the LCRP as it may appear to some who read this email. In fact, as with almost all the Tea Parties, affiliation with any political party has been avoided. This is a true grass-roots movement designed by volunteers - many of whom have never been politically active before. Additionally, there are many attendees who are just as angry at the Republicans as they are the Democrats for the tax-and-spend votes and decisions which have gotten so many of them upset to the point that we are even having tea parties in the first place.
I also know that a representative from the LCRP sent a message to the Tea Party Facebook page yesterday asking for details of the event and they were sent the flyer that had been designed. This is what they did with the information.
GOP Chairman Jon Stainbrook is just one of many people who plan to attend the event and the prizes for best patriotic costume and poster have been arranged by the organizers - not the LCRP.
So if you have questions about the Tea Party, it is best to contact the organizer of the event, Tricia Lyons (tricia dot lyons at electroprime dot com) or click on the link in the left-hand column of my blog for the Toledo Tea Party Facebook page where you can RSVP.
I'm sure Tricia and the other volunteers who have worked so hard to organize the Toledo Tea Party appreciate the additional advertising from the LCRP email and that they will welcome any Republican who decides to join the event.
