American for Prosperity

This week’s meeting will feature Joel Aaron Foster, Georgia Grassroots Coordinator for Americans for Prosperity. He will be walking us through a “Phone Party” using AFP’s high tech new database that reaches out to known conservatives. Joel will provide the phones and other tech needed to demonstrate how this works, and give us a chance to use it.

Prior to joining AFP he worked in broadcasting on AM 920, WGKA, so you may remember him from his radio days. He has a sharp wit and you rarely see him without a smile. He has been involved with the Georgia Tea Party since our earliest days in 2009, and has worked with us on many of our major projects.
Come join the discussion this Thursday evening at 7pm!

Judicial Conversations Meeting (aka JudiCon)

Vic

Cobb District Attorney Vic Reynolds

The NEW Judicial Conversations group will give us a chance to learn about the Judicial Courts and process in Georgia, and meet with Judicial candidates. We will come to understand their background and credentials, their judicial philosophy, and have an exchange that allows us to share our political philosophy and ask questions.

On October 13, our JudiCon speaker was Cobb District Attorney Vic Reynolds. This was a very informative exchange with a dedicated public servant.

To find out how you can be a part of the Georgia Tea Party’s Judicial Conversations group, or if you’re a GTP volunteer that would like to be a part of future meetings, please contact GTP Board Member JD Van Brink

The Georgia Tea Party does not endorse or support candidates, and elected Officials and Candidates are not invited to speak at our Public meetings. Officials and Candidates are invited to our Committee Meetings to learn of their views.
