This is a reminder, a second post, that a reorganization and planning meeting has been requested and scheduled for Monday, January 24, 2011, at the Smoky Hill Library [Room B] for the Arapahoe County Tea Party (ATP). If you have already responded to the original post, parden the duplication and reminder.
The group should:
a. select new leadership for the tea party group
b. discuss calendar for the Republican party events since leadership selection for the political parties will happen soon
c. suggest goal(s) for 2011
One person has expressed an interest in becoming the chairperson for the ATP. Is there anyone else wanting to throw their hat in the ring?
Fredrick Lindner is expected to address the group regarding the coming events for the county and state Republican party. He can also address coordination with other groups in the state.
Stephanie Danaher from the Southeast Aurora Republicans may be present and address some of the interests with the GOP from their lively local group to county and state issues.
Please come prepared to suggest topics that the ATP can address in the coming months and become more involved in our communities.
Background information for ATP:
In April or May 2009 a couple with the last name of West started both this web site and meeting with a small group of people they had connected with. The first few meetings were held at their condo/townhome complex clubhouse until their employment suddenly took them to Texas. Fredrick Lindner took the leadership at that point (about August 2009) and the group met briefly in the coffee shop area at Borders Book Store and then met for a while at the home of Theresa and Randy Collins.
Fredrick summarized the numerous e-mails he received from other liberty groups into a newsletter that he sent out two or three times a month and coordinated with local 9-12 Project and Tea Party groups to do candidate forums, caucus training, and other events until about September 2010. He set up the Arap Tea-Party page on Facebook. The leaders of the numerous Colorado liberty groups were meeting fairly regularly and Fredrick attended when possible or joined them on teleconference calls at times. Several months ago Fredrick tried to find someone to assume a leadership role since his own work schedule and other responsibilities required more attention.
Now is a good time to find out if there is renewed interest in meetings for the ATP and what focus might be attempted for 2011. Of course there is much on the national level for attention but the Colorado legislature is in session and much to watch there. If there are local issues that require attention now might be a good time to start focusing on this and any future elections. Some groups are focusing on leadership training.
