Schoharie County Tea Party Meeting-- April 2010

From one participant:

"New Obama Care...we asked for bacon and eggs and the government serves us “imitation bacon bits and powered eggs” and says it’s the same thing, charges us more and says we no longer have a choice. Just eat it and shut up or else!... What kind of America is this? "

That was just some of the sentiment at the first meeting of the Schoharie Party Tea Party, which met on Thursday April 15th in Richmondville, NY. According to sources, between 300-400 people participated in this grassroots exercise in democracy.

The hall was so packed that many people had to wait outside as the speakers and the audience made their cases. We did have one of our writers at the meeting, and reported on the triumphant success of the meeting.

In attendance were many of political prominance-- in place to listen to the people. These included State Assemblyman Peter Lopez, State Senator Jim Seward, and Middleburgh Supervisor Dennis Richards.

The next meeting of the Tea Party will be May 11th in Richmondville. All are invited.

Special thanks to Mimi for the info!
