As true Tea Party Patriots, we must stand together with our brothers and sisters when any and all injustices arise. It has been brought to my attention that one of our own, Steve McQueen, was denied his voice in Quincy, Illinois, by a party-line vote (7 Dems, 6 Reps). This is unacceptable. Here is the Action Alert. Please join me in responding to this unacceptable behavior and show your support for each American citizen who has the right, the duty, to address our city officials. After all, they do work for us. Let us kindly remind them of this.
Action Alert: Tea Party Organizer Needs Our Help!
Posted: 05 May 2009 06:36 AM PDT
This message was emailed to me this morning. I think it’s worthy of our attention.
DATELINE: Quincy, Illinois. Folks, this is just outrageous! Steve McQueen, the organizer of the city’s Tea Party in April, was denied, on a party-line vote (7 Dems, 6 Reps), the ability to address the city council on its recent budget that passed, which included water and sewage tax increases.
According to the story by QuincyNews.org, the motion was passed not to allow him to speak on the issue, and even the mayor chimed in on after he was sworn in to office in Quincy.
So here’s what we need to do as a Tea Party folks. We need to support our own, so do the following:
1) Call the town of Quincy. Demand to speak to the Mayor’s office[, but be polite]. Here’s the info:
Mayor John A. Spring
730 Maine Street
Quincy, IL 62301
2) E-mail the mayor’s office. Here’s the email: mayor AT quincyil DOT gov.
3) Quincy media outlets. Voice your opinion. Here’s a list of media:
B) Quincy Herald Whig
Managing editor: Don Crim
E: dcrim AT whig DOT com.
C) WGEM (NBC) (Also their number for the radio affiliate)
P: (217) 228-6655
E: News AT WGEM.com.
Start the calls, start the e-mails… let them know you’re
pissed upset and [we demand justice.] the Tea Party’s won’t stand for it!
Share and Save.
I did a little editing because we must keep our decorum. We do not want to give them a justifiable reason to hang up on us, even though they will. Even though this was a party line vote, also keep those republicans feet to the fire. Let them know we appreciate their vote to allow us our FREE SPEECH, but it should never have been an issue from the beginning. How does it get to the point where these twerps actually get to vote on whether or not they get listen to what we have to say?
Can anyone say, “Tea Party…Big Time!” Thanks.
May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
