In Teablogging’s inbox this morning (read the slightly less hysterical version at the Quincy News here):


Action Alert: Tea Party Organizer Needs Our Help!

This message was emailed to me this morning. I think it’s worthy of our attention.

DATELINE: Quincy, Illinois. Folks, this is just outrageous! Steve McQueen, the organizer of the city’s Tea Party in April, was denied, on a party-line vote (7 Dems, 6 Reps), the ability to address the city council on its recent budget that passed, which included water and sewage tax increases.

According to the story by http://www.quincynews.org, the motion was passed not to allow him to speak on the issue, and even the mayor chimed in on after he was sworn in to office in Quincy.

So here’s what we need to do as a Tea Party folks. We need to support our own, so do the following:

1) Call the town of Quincy. Demand to speak to the Mayor’s office. Here’s the info:
Mayor John A. Spring
730 Maine Street
Quincy, IL 62301
(217) 228-4545

2) E-mail the mayor’s office. Here’s the email: mayor@quincyil.gov

3) Quincy media outlets. Voice your opinion. Here’s a list of media:

A) QuincyNews.org
P: 217-617-6665
E: http://www.quincynews.org/contact.html

B) Quincy Herald Whig
Managing editor: Don Crim
P: 217-221-3361

C) WGEM (NBC) (Also their number for the radio affiliate)

Start the calls, start the e-mails… let them know you’re pissed and the Tea Party’s won’t stand for it!
