One of the few bummers about being a US Army Reservist is that, a couple times each year, I have to miss the monthly meeting of the Redlands Tea Party Patriots.
And how I wish I could attend Thursday’s meeting at the Mill Creek Cattle Co. in Mentone!
Gary Miller and Bob Dutton, the two Republicans fighting for the new 31st congressional district (you know, the one uber-lib Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar couldn’t win despite having no real opposition and a majority Democrat district) will debate.
Redlands’ assemblyman in Sacramento, Mike Morrell, will discuss a slate of recent state bills as well as efforts by Gov. Jerry Brown to raise our taxes via the
I would speak at the meeting if I were, well, there. I'm currently doing my annual Army Reserve duty in Fort Rucker, Ala. (I'm not making this up: The locals call the area, "LA," as in, "Lower Alabama.")
Each month, I discuss our neighborhood canvassing efforts at our monthly meeting. (And for the record, we will resume our fall neighborhood canvassing every Saturday through the election, beginning Sept. 15, after I complete my Army Reserve duty.)
Thursday's meeting is free and open to the public. The two-hour meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Mill Creek Cattle Co., 1874 Mentone Blvd. For more information, go to redlandsteaparty.com.
Somebody go for me!
