FreedomWork's Adam Brandon to be
Keynote Speaker at PCTEA Annual Dinner
Kent, OH - The Portage County TEA Party announced today that Adam Brandon, Executive Director of FreedomWorks, will be the Keynote Speaker at the groups Annual Fund Raising Dinner which will be held on Friday, December 6, 2013. FreedomWorks is a non-profit organization headquartered in Washington DC that mobilizes grassroots activists nationwide to fight for less government, lower taxes and more freedom. Brandon, a Cleveland native, will be returning home to talk to the Portage County TEA Party members about the changing political environment and how that will impact grass roots efforts in the 2014 and 2016 elections.
“I grew up in Northeast Ohio, and I am excited to be back in Ohio. This will be a great night, but I will have some pressure, because my mom and dad will be in the crowd” Adam Brandon said in a statement. “It has been increasingly clear that it is no longer Republican versus Democrat, but all of America versus Washington. Groups like the Portage County TEA Party are what it’s going to take to get Washington back on track.”
Tom Zawistowski, Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party, said in making the announcement "We are honored to have Adam give our members some insights into the future direction of the TEA Party movement. FreedomWorks has been one of the few organization that have stood strong with local TEA Party groups since our movement started. We all know that 2014 is going to be a very important year at a state and national level. Our members will be anxious to hear how FreedomWorks is looking at 2014 and how that will help direct our efforts locally."
The Annual Fund Raising Dinner is designed to raise money for the Portage County TEA Party Political Action Committee so that it can participate freely in the 2014 elections. The event is a private event and is only open to members of the Portage County TEA Party and their guests. Any citizen can join the Portage County TEA Party by signing up on its website at www.PortageCountyTEAParty.com.
The TEA Party is not a political party but a grassroots cultural movement. The movement is educating American citizens about the Constitution and the uniquely American form of self-governance that has made our country so successful. Through this education, the movement is attempting to re-define what it means to be an American citizen, by encouraging individual to vote, to run for office and to attend government meeting in their area so that they can participate in their self governance. The acronym TEA stands for Totally Engaged Americans.
