October 29th: Tennessee Alliance annual convention, in Lebanon at the Fairgrounds, 9AM – 4:30PM. This was an alliance of all TN Tea Parties at one time. Two TAG members went last year and they have top rate speakers for grassroots group members. This is for the true activists to hear the issues of the day. Last year we heard about the push for paper ballots and why, technically, they were needed from an expert who worked directly with grassroots and legislator to push for the paper ballots. We also heard A.J. DePriest debut her research with the federal papers on reimbursement for hospitals. This was HOT stuff! More info later.
