Upcoming Events and Post Meeting Highlights

Fellow Tea Party Patriots:

Thank you to everyone who attended this past month's meeting.  Below you will find some highlights from this past meeting, and notes about upcoming events.  

Upcoming Events:

05 November: We Hold Rights will be having an evening Bonfire and BBQ from 5-9PM.  Please see attached flyer for the RSVP information.

08 November (Tuesday):  Election Day!  Make sure to go out and vote legally.  If you or any other citizens need assistance in getting to the polls, Karen Lanacelli can place you in contact with individuals who will be able to provide transportation.  
Additionally, the Republican party has asked if there are volunteers to man the table at any of the 5 polling stations in our county.  if you are interested, the available timeslots are 6-11AM, 11AM-3PM, 3-7PM.  Please reach out to Karen for additional information.

Tea Party Meetings November and December:
Because of the Holiday Schedule with Thanksgiving and Christmas, we are expecting to have a social gathering each month in lieu of our standard meetings.  Details will be forth coming, so be on the lookout for additional information, but it will likely be closer to the middle of the month than our current meeting times.

Meeting Highlights:
We Hold Rights had a brief discussion of their continuing efforts to secure expanding medical rights for all citizens.  Please see attached for an article that appeared in the Northern Neck Sentinel, which includes a history of the vaccine mandates related to federal employment and the impact on those who have not shared an affirmative vaccination status with their employer, regardless of the reasons provided or exemptions requested.  

Efforts to stir potential voter interest in the county include individuals door knocking on behalf of candidates, to the tune of larger than 1000 homes.  That's quite a feat for our rural county and is an effort to be proud of!

For those who may not be aware, there have been updates to polling locations in our county.  Of particular note is the update for the Dahlgren District to the UMW Campus, behind Walmart.  Please check out the county website to confirm your voting location.

As a reminder to all citizens, the King George Board of Supervisors holds public meetings the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month, at 6:30PM.  An informed public is necessary to hold our county officials accountable for their actions and decisions.

A memorable statement from the evening:
A conservative county such as ours deserves conservative representation

As always, we look forward to seeing you at our next meeting and we appreciate all of your efforts.
