Thanks for joining the 912Project TEA Party. We have two meetings a month, the second Sat 3-5 and the 4th Thursday 6:30 to 8:30, which is also a POT LUCK. We have found that this makes it easy for most of our members to attend one or the other. In November we will not have our meeting as that is Thanksgiving. Months when holidays interrupt our regular meetings I rely on the web site and emails to keep everyone abreast of what is going on that TEA Party members should be aware of. There is a lot coming up and a lot happening and that will not slow down during the holiday season. In fact, we have found the last two years that things seem to escalate because "they" know we are "taking care of business".
I try to send out minimal emails and only on those things that need immediate attention. Nobody likes to get 10 emails a day from the same source so when you get one from the Tea Party Cochise County you will know there is something important attached. I also send out meeting notices and reminders of any events that we are having or participating in.
The web site is interactive so anytime you would like to comment or share something you have found please post on any of the discussion groups. I have just opened a new group for the 2012 Candidates for all levels. This is going to be our vehicle to vet the candidates. Currently there are national Candidates listed. we will add more candidates as they announce including our local governments, school board, etc.
We are also looking for people to attend the various meetings of the organizations that have taxing authority over us specifically the School Board and the Fire Districts. I have been attending the special interest groups the Upper San Pedro Partnership and the HNRCD which have similiar focus but diverse ways to reach their goals. We have to keep an eye on what the powers that be are doing. We have been asleep too long and we want to make "them" aware of the fact that we are not sleeping any more!!
I hope that you will be able to attend a meeting soon.
