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
Ohio Conservatives United (OCU) just posted the January numbers. For the 9th month in a row, Ohio’s Conservatives have indicated they like Sen Cruz the best. The polling by over 60 conservative groups and organizations started last May and has continued on a regular basis. Since May, Cruz has consistently maintained a hefty lead over the other candidates. OCU Spokesman John McAvoy says: “Early voting starts in two weeks. Every voter I’ve talked to knows […]
Linda O’Brien, by her own definition, is just an average Ohio Republican voter who just got fed up with the Ohio Republican parties lying, cheating, corruption, bullying, and no accountability for their actions. So, on December 15th, Ms O’brien did like dozens of fellow conservative Republicans, she filed her paperwork to run as a State Central Committee member in Senate district 18. Last Week, Linda O’Brien spoke about her life, her upbringing, and about the […]
The Ohio Republican party State Central Committee’s (SCC) attempt to purge Conservative Republicans ran afoul for the second time in as many weeks. Last night the Marion County Board of Elections announced that Lisa Cooper will remain on the ballot as a viable candidate for the Republican Party State Central Committee District 26 (SCC26). The Ohio GOP’s purge attempt started three weeks ago, when they voted to endorse themselves for re-election. After a slanderous outburst […]
As we welcome the new year, county Board of Elections (BOE) have released the candidate lists for who appears on the March 15 ballot. National attention is on the Presidential races where a phenomenon of dissatisfied Republicans has launched conservative candidates into the top 5 rankings, leaving the standard “Establishment” candidates like Kasich and Bush sitting on the side lines with single digit poll ratings. In Ohio, this Republican dissatisfaction phenomenon is spilling all the […]

Chagrin Falls, OH – As the February 17th early voting period draws closer, Congressional Challenger Matt Lynch continues to add to his list of endorsements.

Does the Ohio Republican State Central Committee (SCC) represent Republican Voters or Gov Kasich? Last week, the Ohio GOP SCC voted to endorse Gov Kasich, then they voted to lie to the public by telling them it was unanimous. It wasn’t, the vote was 55 to 9. (SEE ARTICLE HERE) A review of the Kasich Delegates list shows that almost 1/2 of the Ohio Republican SCC members or their spouses are Kasich Delegates, It appears […]
Last fall, word was out that the Ohio Republican Party and Gov Kasich would not take kindly to State or County Central Committee members providing any assistance to other Presidential Candidates, especially in regards to finding Delegates. (i.e. If you help Cruz, or Carson, or any of the others, kiss your Ohio GOP job and Governor appointments goodbye) With virtually zero assistance from the Ohio GOP, these candidates were having a difficult time recruiting. Some […]
