Want to make a difference in Virginia politics? Itching to do something about the mid-term elections? Here’s your chance!

The Richmond Tea Party wants to answer a call for help from the tea parties in the 9th District (southwest Virginia) and from Americans for Limited Government. But we need your help to do it.

They have asked that we send a busload of volunteers to Christiansburg on Saturday, September 11th to help hand out voter guides in a door-to-door campaign to highlight the differences between the candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives.

The current representative is Rick Boucher (D, currently serving his 14th term) who needs to be removed. He is a typical tax and spend big government politician and is a supporter of Cap & Trade legislation. His challenger is Morgan Griffith (R, who has been serving on the VA House since 1994). He is committed to constitutionally limited government.

If you have the time, we need your help to make a difference!

Details:

The 47-passenger bus will depart from the Short Pump Target parking lot at 5:30 AM on Saturday, September 11th. We recommend that you arrive by 5:00 AM.

Richmond Tea Party is paying for the bus, so there is no charge for the volunteers. But, we will ask that you sign a waiver of liability statement prior to boarding the bus.

Breakfast will be served in Christiansburg at 8:30 Saturday morning, and we’ll get started around 9:00 and will depart at 5:00 PM.  We will be provided all materials, training, and transportation.

We have to confirm the bus to James River Bus Lines no later than Tuesday, September 7th, so if you can help, please respond as soon as possible to susanl@richmondteaparty.com. Please provide your name and phone number.

Every person will be contacted by phone prior to departure.
