In Westchester Township, Ohio:  Tea Party ‘grass-roots politics at its best’

WEST CHESTER TWP. — A few hundred local residents showed up to be the next voices of America on Friday, May 29.

Folks representing 20 southwest Ohio communities, including local lawmakers, made up the first West Chester Community Tea Party, organizers said. About 250 people were present at the Miami University satellite campus at Voice of America Park.

“I think it speaks to how fired up people are right now,” Cincinnati’s Mike Wilson, founder of the Cincinnati Tea Party, said about the attendance. The group was formed this year as a nonpartisan advocate for national government that is run by the people, said Wilson.

He urged attendees to do more than vote or complain about the outcome of an election.

The purpose of the gathering, he said, was to inform local residents about the organization, giving them a chance to become tea party leaders in their voting precincts.
