Nebraska Taxpayers for Freedom will hold its annual Tax Day Tea Party on Saturday, April 13, from 2 PM to 4 PM at Walnut Grove Park, 150th & Q Streets, Omaha. The theme of this year’s Tea Party is “Great Expectations,” regarding the great expectations on tax and spending control that we expect from conservative candidates in the present city election. Guest speakers are as follows: Jean Stothert, candidate for Mayor of Omaha, as keynote speaker. Omaha City Council candidates Ed Truemper (District 1), Rich Pahls (District 5), and Aimee Melton (District 7), and several Omaha Public School board candidates. There also will be patriotic music and drawings for prizes.
According to the Tax Foundation, Nebraskans will work this year until April 12 to pay their federal, state, and local taxes. So it will be appropriate for our speakers to discuss our city and school tax situations and their consistency regarding tax reduction and pledges to use tax dollars for basic services and not frivolous spending.
