There will be a Tea Party rally at the State Capitol on Saturday, October 17th – the first day of the Special Session. This is one of the most important events for the TEA Party movement because the State Legislature will begin work on the budget shortfall – now estimated to be nearly $700 Million!
The organizers are asking everyone from around the state to join us in sending a message to our elected officials.
DETAILS & SCHEDULE:
Saturday, October 17
8:30 – Meet at the Capitol
Group 1 will line the sidewalks to greet legislators as they come. Voter Registration and Information Tables will be set up.
10:00 – Press Conference in the Rotunda
We will hold a press conference in the Rotunda from 10 – 10:30. I will be speaking on behalf of the Rio Grande Foundation and Marita Noon will be speaking on behalf of the Citizens Alliance for Responsible Energy. Our elected officials have done more to push the gas and oil industry out of New Mexico – and along with it goes revenue and jobs!
The Special Session begins at Noon – You are encouraged to go the gallery and into committee meetings to make the case against tax hikes and for responsible spending cuts.
