(October 15, 2010)- On September 25th, 2010, the St Louis Tea Party Coalition unveiled the Tea Party Treaty. As the document rolled out across Missouri and across the Nation, Tea Party Organizations signed on. What happened next was completely unexpected.And, remember, the St. Louis Tea Party is looking for volunteers to help out at our south city office located at 4512 Hampton Av. We specifically need volunteers to phone-bank Saturday from 10am-2pm. And there's BBQ for volunteers from 2 to 5.
As Missouri Candidate Ed Martin humbly signed on to the Treaty as the first official signature, word quickly spread through Congressional and Senatorial circles. Candidates and Elected Officials alike began flocking toward the document, wishing to sign onto the Treaty as well.
Congressman Roy Blunt, and Candidates Robyn Hamlin, Paul Curtman and Greg Zotta quickly followed suit. On Saturday, October 16, Senator Jim Lembke will be joining volunteers at St. Louis Tea Party Coalition Headquarters to work along side them, thank them for their efforts, and address his Constituents. Senator Lembke has announced that he will be signing onto the Treaty at that time, as will Candidate Gary Fuhr.
Also confirmed to sign the Treaty are Candidate Brian Neives on Tuesday, October 19, as well as Congressman Todd Akin at a time to be determined. An additional forty-plus Candidates and Elected Officials, Republicans, Democrats and Independents, have received a copy of the Tea Party Treaty for consideration.
As Candidates and Officials sign on to the Treaty, they make a very public statement of entering into accountability with the Constituents, something the voters are looking for in the upcoming election. While the Mainstream Tea Party Movement continues to push forward amidst an unprecedented Mid-term Election, Candidates are opting for the Treaty as tool of choice to gain voter confidence.
The purpose of the Tea Party Treaty is to hold signatories in alignment with Tea Party Principles: Fiscal Accountability, Transparency in Government and Constitutional Principles at every level of government.
