Florida Tea Parties Unite…To Celebrate The State

Tea Party and 9/12 Project Groups From Throughout Florida Come Together in Welcoming Governor Rick Scott to Eustis, FL

Eustis, Florida, will be buzzing with excitement on Monday as Tea Party, 9/12 Project and other freedom groups from throughout the state, proudly welcome Governor Rick Scott to their ‘Tea Parties Unite’ rally.  In addition, Gov. Scott has announced that he will unveil his new budget at this event!

This unprecedented action will take place Monday, February 7th at 1:00 PM at the historic Alice McClelland Band Shell at Ferran Park in downtown Eustis, 1 W. Orange Ave, located at the junction of Ferran Park Rd and Orange Ave.  The North Lake Tea Party will be hosting the event.  The general public is invited to attend.

Over sixty grassroots organizations have confirmed their participation with event organizers and are very encouraged by Governor Scott’s continuing commitment to the grassroots support that played an integral role in his election.  This activist coalition is looking forward to a budget with a strong emphasis on cutting taxes and reducing government spending.

“Gov. Scott’s bold decision to release his budget at a Tea Party rally really sets a precedent by including the very people who’ll actually be contributing to it and speaks volumes to the strength of this movement”, said Tom Gaitens, state director of FreedomWorks.

Tea Party favorite Lloyd Marcus will kick off the event at 12:30 PM with a 30 minute pre-rally, and additional speakers will include State Rep. Mike Weinstein – “Let’s Talk Caucus”, former FBI agent Gary Aldrich – ‘DC and Tea: United as One’, and local tea party hero Dr. Jack Cassell speaking on the ‘Defeat of ObamaCare’.

Attendance is expected to be heavy, and all are encouraged to arrive early and enjoy lunch in the park or at the many charming downtown Eustis restaurants.

Press: Only credentialed press will be admitted.  Press contact will be Matt Newby, who can be reached at 352.669.2430 / northlakeoutpost@aol.com

Gov. Scott will meet privately with invited tea party leaders at the Eustis Community Center prior to the scheduled event.
