Katie Eagan, the newly appointed Ohio State Director  of Americans for Prosperity, will come and tell us all about Americans for Prosperity - who they are and what they are doing and what we can do to become more involved in restoring America.  Their mission statement is below.

Our Missions

Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is committed to educating citizens about economic policy and mobilizing those citizens as advocates in the public policy process. AFP is an organization of grassroots leaders who engage citizens in the name of limited government and free markets on the local, state, and federal levels. The grassroots activists of AFP advocate for public policies that champion the principles of entrepreneurship and fiscal and regulatory restraint. To that end, AFP supports:

  • Cutting taxes and government spending in order to halt the encroachment of government in the economic lives of citizens by fighting proposed tax increases and pointing out evidence of waste, fraud, and abuse.
  • Tax and Expenditure Limitations to promote fiscal responsibility.
  • Removing unnecessary barriers to entrepreneurship and opportunity by sparking citizen involvement in the regulatory process early on in order to reduce red tape.
  • Restoring fairness to our judicial system.

Scotty Sedlak will be presenting some information on a new non-profit organization he started called the The Thomas Jefferson Knowledge Institute whose aim is to teach an appreciation of the U.S. Constitution to grade school children.

 

Look for some political candidates to start making their way to our meetings.

 

We will also have an open forum to discuss issues which you feel are important.  Come prepared to speak and question.   No one will be put on the spot -- come to listen and learn.

    Despite the bad weather and the fact that our featured speaker had to turn back because of the storm, we had a great meeting.

    It is too bad that our guest wasn't able to attend (an accident on I-71 and traffic tie-up was the reason as I remember). However, Scotty provided some very interesting discussions. I believe that his Thomas Jefferson Knowledge Institute is a very good project (www.tjki.org). The fact that Federal law requires teaching the Constitution on Constitution day should be motivation for getting this type of information into your school. His project will do that. Go Scotty!
