Tea Party Manatee - Mission Statement

Tea Party Manatee is a non-partisan organization made up of concerned citizens of Manatee County and surrounding areas, funded by the generous support of the community. Our goal is to establish a central database for the Tea Party Movement in our community to keep its members informed about upcoming events, governmental issues, candidates and resources. We believe in the principals of our Founding Fathers, of a government of the people, for the people and by the people. By being informed and active citizens, we can do our part in safeguarding and defending our Constitution, American Values and Freedom. We believe that all governmental officials are employed by the American people, and to that extent, we expect them to act on our behalf, and not independently from the will of the people. For this purpose, we have organized to hold our elected officials accountable to the office in which they serve, and to relay to them the voice of the people of Manatee County. Tea Party Manatee is a tax-exempt organization formed under section 26 U.S.C. § 527 of the United States tax code.

We meet every Tuesday from 6-8 pm at Mixon Fruit Farms in the Honeybell Hall, Map it.

Tea Party Manatee welcomes all like-minded Americans.
