Beavers: Wilson County Tea Party will be back
Jan 02, 2013 3:30 pm
According to state Sen. Mae Beavers, the Wilson County Tea Party is not going away.
According to a release from Beavers emailed to The Democrat from one of its members, the Wilson County Tea Party is not disbanding as earlier announced by former chairman Sherrie Orange. Rather, Beavers said the group is reorganizing under new leaders Menda and Howard Holmes.
According to the release, Orange endorses the transition fully and will work with the new leadership “to ensure a smooth transition occurs.”
Beavers said in the release Menda Holmes set in motion three primary objectives for the Wilson County Tea Party.
The organization is proactive, promoting the election of conservative candidates with good character, plans to provide public awareness of legislative action on issues important to conservatives at the local, state and federal levels and plans to offer continuing education on constitutional principles and self governance, according to the release.
Beavers said in the release the Wilson County Tea Party will meet in late February with the date, time and guest speaker to be posted at wilsoncountyteaparty.com once website reconstruction is complete in the coming weeks.
Additional information is also available by emailing Menda Holmes at email@example.com.
