April 14th Meeting Recap

apr_mtg_bannerLakes Area Tea Party was delighted to host political radio commentator Ron Edwards from the Edwards Notebook Commentary on WDTK The Patriot, 92.7 FM & 1400 AM. Ron educated and entertained the audience with his talk on “America, Where Do We Go from Here.” We greatly appreciated him and his lovely wife Denise for joining us for that evening.

At Monday night’s monthly meeting we also welcomed 17 year old author Nathan Richendollar. Nathan inspired us all with intellect, keen insight and desire to step up and become involved in the effort to preserve our republic.  Nathan’s book, Sic Semper Res Publica: The Political Ramblings of a Disgruntled Midwestern Teenager, was available for purchase.

Allison Murkowski was present at the meeting representing the “Vote Biblically Initiative”. She gave a brief summery for the objective of the organization. If more people voted biblically we could regain God’s favor and blessings upon our nation.

Kelly Connolly once again addressed the group and gave an update on the Part Time Legislature Initiative. She presently has rented a table for the upcoming Gun and Knife show at the Suburban Collection Showplace (April 18 & 19) in order to collect petition signatures. A few more people are needed to help out at the show. If you are interested in helping out or getting a few petitions to pass around to friends and family this upcoming weekend, please contact Kelly at Kconnolly@comcast.net.

Our own Peggy Miller addressed the group on the need to volunteer for the candidates we are supporting. Matt Maddock and Deb O’Hagan were encouraged to run on our behalf and it is up to us to support them in every way we can. Volunteer meetings are planned. Please see our calendar. Visit their websites at www.debohagan.org and www.mattmaddock.com.

Wes Nakagiri gave a last call for Precinct Delegates. The deadline is fast approaching. We must step up now if we want to have a conservative Republican Party in our state. Becoming a Precinct Delegate amplifies your vote in the party. If interested please contact Sue Helke at susanhelke@yahoo.com. Also, visit Wes Nagagari’s website here.
