Dear Tea Party Friends,
Tea Party activity in Ventura County last year was minimal except for a Thousand Oaks group discussing mostly “National” issues and a few folks have been involved in the Ventura County Conservative Action Alliance. (VCCAA)
This election year may prove to be the most important election in decades. Washington establishment politicians have failed us, including many who were previously supported and elected by the Tea Party efforts. At all levels of government, they have fallen far short of stopping the growth of government and out of control spending. In fact, most support the status quo and have little concern for the taxpayers.
Regardless of the Presidential outcome, we must begin to take back our government and that task; starts within your city. Almost every city in Ventura County is controlled by the big-spending politicians from both parties. In fact, it is hard to find a conservative Councilman or School Board member in most cities!
Most cities are raising taxes, fees, sewer rates and water rates without any local opposition while their un-funded pension liabilities continue to grow. We need a Tea-Party-like effort to stop this madness! We need your help!
Please join us at the next meeting of the Ventura County Conservative Action Alliance next Thursday, February 25th at the “The Junkyard” Restaurant in Simi Valley. Dinner (Optional) at 6pm – General Meeting at 7pm. (2585 Cochran Street, Simi Valley, CA 93065 – 805-520-5865)
Joe Panzararello, JBS representative for Southern California, will be making a presentation at this meeting about Pastors getting their church members involved in the political process. I have attached a copy of the program.
Last year, the Ventura County Conservative Action Alliance began to organize local organizations across Ventura County and has formed “Conservative Action Alliances” in Simi Valley/Moorpark, Thousand Oaks and Camarillo. I am currently organizing a unit in Oxnard/City of Ventura.
Our goal is to elect and re-elect “Conservatives” in each city’s School Board and City Council races. These are non-partisan offices and that is the best way to take back control of our local governments, schools and communities. Remember – “All Politics are Local”
Please invite your conservative friends, relatives and neighbors.
Looking forward to seeing you next Thursday.
Don Otto, Coordinator
