Spring is beginning to show itself a little more each day. As the snow melts and the air slowly warms, tiny shoots of new growth will soon start to cover the earth. And so it is with our Tea Party group. It’s at this time each year when the Executive Board is renewed with fresh faces, bold ideas, and new vision for our future. This year's Executive Board members, listed in no particular order are Mr. Lynn Patnaude, Mrs. Arlene Klocek, Mr. Tony Simao, Mr. Tom Carroll, Dr. Christine Bongiorno, Mr. Dave Dahms, Mr. Mike Ciasulli, Mr. Bill Tunke, Mr. John Mattaboni, and Mr. Michael Gross. Serving as Vice Chairman is Mr. Tom Campione, and serving as Chairman is Mr. Ronnie DelBacco. (
This year we will be reviewing our policy of “educate on issues only” and consider whether the board and the membership both wish to affect political change by taking an active role in the political process, which is currently prohibited only by our own doing. (section 1.03 of our by-laws) If a more active role is desired, we'll need to decide just how far we might wish to go. Depending upon those answers, we may or may not need to modify our corporate structure; however, no major decisions will be made without hearing from active members. We therefore urge you to renew your membership (dues form is here) so that you will have a voice in this critical planning of our organization’s future as an active member.
This will be a year for action! In the coming weeks we will lay out a set of ambitious, but achievable goals for the LVTP. With each member finding his or her niche, and lending a hand to support, promote, and strengthen our founding principles we will be able to take the LVTP to the next level and establish our group as a role model for other Patriot groups around the country. By strengthening our Action Committees we will be more vocal, more visible, and most importantly more active.
Mark your calendars now for the April 4th General Membership Event! Bring your family, bring your friends, and bring your neighbors too. Not only are we still watching,
WE'RE COMING FOR THEM!
