After our last regular meeting and Ted’s resignation, the steering committee had a meeting to make some decisions about the future of the Clermont Tea Party.
After much deliberation and discussion, we decided that the monthly meetings were no longer serving the objectives of growing our membership, and increasing engagement. In fact, attendance at our meetings has dropped to about a third of what it was even early this year. We interpret this as a declining interest, even in a presidential election cycle. As a result, we will not be holding our monthly meetings going forward. We will, however, schedule special meetings, as conditions dictate.
We will maintain the Clermont Tea Party web site and Facebook page as well as our email communications for the foreseeable future. Thanks to all of our loyal supporters for the last six years! It has been a great run, but we need to change directions.
Thank you all,
Clermont Tea Party
NOTE – Conservative groups in NW Ohio,, Findlay, Toledo, and all across Ohio played a key roll in helping Donald Trump ( and all the Presidential candidates) during the Primary. We would like to think that Mr Trumps decision to make Toledo his first Ohio campaign stop served as a big Thank You to all the people in Ohio, especially Cheryl Blakely and NW Ohio for all their help. Toledo, OH – We want to […]
Akron, OH: The We the People Convention, announced today that the majority of the TEA Party/Liberty Groups in Ohio will be aligning with the National Rifle Association in an effort to elect Donald Trump as the next President of the United States. “We are pleased to align our efforts in this Presidential election with the NRA because so many of our members are also NRA members and gun owners,” said Tom Zawistowski, President of the […]
Presidential Republican Candidate Donald Trump will be making a stop in Toledo tomorrow night.

Toledo Tea Party Chairman John McAvoy says: “We’re very pleased that Mr Trump has chosen Toledo as his first Ohio campaign stop, and unlike Gov Kasich, Toledo Republicans will be pulling out all the stops to welcome Mr Trump to Ohio.” CLICK HERE […]
CLEVELAND – Instead of dwelling on what wasn’t said, I prefer to focus on what was spoken. The Pennslylvania Delegation began its third day at the convention with a breakfast of testimonies from elected Republican officials emphasizing the historical legacy that is incumbent upon us. Congressman Keith Rothfus (PA-12th District) stated that the notion of self-rule, self-government and individual rights is from the hand of God. When Congressman Rothfus said that “A Better Way” legislation […]
CLEVELAND – Yesterday, on Day Two of the Republican National Convention, Delegates, Alternate Delegates, their guests, and the media personally witnessed the rebirth of the Republican Party. I was interviewed by a journalist from Switzerland’s RTI who asked me if I was concerned that the Bush and Romney families were absent from the Convention. I explained that the shift we are witnessing represents a changing of the guard, and the invitation is always open to […]
CLEVELAND – There was a mix of excitement and apprehension for some people amidst the backdrop of national and international tragedy. It seems as though the American and State flags have been permanently flown at half-staff the past week to honor the innocent people who were murdered. Even so, there was an outpouring of support from other police officers, some of which flew in from California to serve as security for the people attending the […]
The Fourth of July is about Courage
Amherst Schools are walking a fine line by promoting the transgender agenda with regard to bathroom rights, while at the same time never voting on an actual policy change to codify those rights. This issue became front and center when President Obama and the Department of Education posted a “Dear Colleague” letter informing schools that students must be allowed to self-report their gender. It claims that if a school does not treat the student by […]
Over 150 folks attended the Freedom Works meetup at the Ohio Convention Center in Columbus, Oh on May 21, 2016. Lots of new people to the patriot movement attended.

Presently our processors are still counting petitions and collecting info to determine which counties have […]
