Douglas County Tea Party Sets 2013 Agenda
The Douglas County Tea Party is set to be the watch dogs over government spending and taxation in Douglas County. At a meeting in December, Beth Martinez was chosen director of the group and the agenda was set for 2013.
According to Martinez the group will meet monthly, on the third Saturday of each month, at 2 p.m., starting on Jan. 19. Meetings will be held at the Irish Bred Pub & Restaurant. Meetings are organized to host local discussions on taxation, government spending, public policy and how it affects taxpayers.
“As citizens we need to be engaged in our government and be the watch dogs”, said Martinez. “The government works best when there is citizen input into policies that affect our lives and our tax dollars.”
Martinez said they will encourage the public to attend government meetings and offer input to affect decisions being made by our elected officials. Each month the Tea Party will host guests to speak on various topics of interest.
At the first meeting on January 19, James Bell of the Georgia Taxpayers Alliance will speak on “Being an Activist” and “Criminal Justice Reform” currently being discussed by the Georgia General Assemble. Bell has been an outspoken advocate for taxpayers and has served as a political consultant for various media outlets.
The Douglas County Tea Party is a non-partisan organization and welcomes all political persuasions.
