The Llano Tea Party encourages all registered voters to exercise your privilege to vote in the Texas Run-off Elections on May 27th which includes candidates for US Senate, statewide, district and local races. Candidates from both Democrat and Republican parties have been invited to participate in a May 1st forum hosted by the Llano Tea Party. Confirmations have been received from Keshsa Rogers (D) for US Senate, Sid Miller (R) for Agriculture Commissioner, Rob Henneke (R) and Andrew Murr (R) for Texas House District 53, and Llano County Justice of the Peace candidates Lyn Jenkins (R) and Bebe Piatt (R) for Precinct 1, and Linda Ballard (R) and Steven Lange (R) for Precinct 2.
In an effort to allow the maximum time for candidates and guests to meet, LTP will begin the May 1st meeting at 5:30 pm with Social time. A buffet dinner will be served at 6:30 pm followed by the candidate forum. Location for the meeting is Inman’s Kitchen (Hwy 29 West) in Llano. To make reservations, please contact Patricia Dawson at 325 247-4567 by Tuesday, April 29th. Should reservations need to be cancelled, please contact Mrs. Dawson no later than April 29th when a confirmation must be provided to Inman’s Catering. The dinner is optional; attendees are requested to advise whether the reservation is for the meal ($15 donation) or for attending the meeting only. Children are welcome and meals for those 12 and under are free. Anyone is welcome to dine, but an increased donation of $17.00 will be requested for the meal for those attending without a reservation at least 48 hours in advance.
The Llano Tea Party was organized in the summer of 2010. Formed by a group of Llano County individuals with conservative values, LTP has a stated goal to “take back” our government. Believing in limited government, working for “We, the people,” LTP believes in individual responsibility and traditional values. Upholding the United States Constitution, lowering taxes, protecting private property and ensuring State’s rights in all matters not specifically granted to the U.S. Government are among those ideals for which LTP strives. The Llano Tea Party operates as a 527 PAC, which allows for financial contributions to its chosen conservative candidates. Special committees focus on educating area residents as well as monitoring elected officials.
The Tea Party has scheduled future meetings to be held the first Thursday each month at Inman’s Kitchen (Hwy. 29 West) in Llano, beginning at 6:00 P.M. All like-minded persons are invited to attend. Membership is free; donations and volunteerism are always appreciated.
