Our Mission: To attract, inform and mobilize patriotic citizens who espouse the behaviors and values that made America exceptional. We seek to promote education, self-reliance, personal responsibility, charity, civic involvement, respect for self and others, and protection of our American freedoms. Through peaceful activism at the local, state and federal levels, it is our goal to uphold the Constitution and secure public policy consistent with our core values of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets.
Who we are: A group of regular citizens that have come together, compelled by the shared observation that traditional American culture of self-reliance, competitiveness, charity, and frugality are giving way to complacency, entitlement, and recklessness. We are folks who see the urgent need to prevent or stop current policies and ideologies trending toward:
• creating dependence on government
• taking from one to give to another
• surrendering of freedoms of the People to a growing central bureaucracy
• rampant and irresponsible government spending
• the division of Americans into separated, protected classes
• disregard for the tenets in and original intent of the Constitution
We are non-profit and grassroots, funded by ourselves. We are non-partisan, supportive of principles rather than political affiliation. We welcome any and all individuals who share these values, regardless of ethnicity or sexual orientation or age. There are no leaders; figureheads are coordinators and spokespeople, who take their cues from the members.
What we do: We educate the citizenry through expert speakers, book studies, seminars and workshops, and letters-to-the-editor. We create awareness of us and issues through rallies and public events. Our members work to support candidates they feel are consistent with Tea Party values. We communicate with our elected officials in every way available.
Co-coordinators Tim Weiss, Jim Devlin & Pam Devlin

I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations. – James Madison
