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

What may seem like a “Civil War” to some may actually be a healthy discussion for others. Now there is certainly no doubt that conservative Republicans across the country have felt let down by statements, actions, and inaction’s by leaders of the national GOP. This frustration, brewing since before 2008, led to the birth of the modern Tea Party in 2009. The insurgent vs. establishment lines were drawn, and the dialog began. On Saturday March […]
