Round table discussions center around topics that need addressed, what actions we can take and benchmarks in measuring our progress. Topics of discussion at this meeting will be:


1. Peninsula Tea Party Mission Statement

2. Voter Fraud

3. Transportation Authority

4. Education

5. Constitutional Convention

6. Gun Control

7. Republican Delegates


This is where you may voice your opinion of what can be done to protect our liberties.

What is a General Education Meeting?
A general meeting will encompass subject matter experts discussing specific issues and overall education of that subject matter. Politicians are invited and we ask that you respect our speakers when they are giving their presentation.


We may invite speakers who are in opposition to Tea Party members values to determine why they stand for what they do. The purpose is to educate ourselves in how others think in developing our opposing argument.


If you have any recommendations for speakers, please feel free to contact me at with any recommendations.

There's more to being a Tea Party than just being heard. By honing our skills, we will be heeded. The more knowledgeable and sophisticated we are in our political work, the more likely we are to influence the political process. Each year hundreds of citizen activists spend thousands of hours on political causes; and, yet, they often see little in the way of real results. Your time is valuable. You need to be sure that your activism will be optimally effective. Christopher has prepared a tailored version of The Real Nature of Politics  for us and a presentation called Grassroots Lobbying. We'll learn the difference between gaining access to politicians versus wielding power with them. Hear about holding elected officials accountable throughout the year through local organizing and activities. Chris will provide us some homework assignments to keep us at the top of our game.
