    It was very well organized and the site was great. Excellent candidates representing both Omaha and our State. I was very disappointed in the disruptions from others to disrupt this event. It does not reflect well on their part and I am glad that the announcement was made so people understood.

    Second time I have been to a tea party event where a small group of people supporting a political candidate .. used it as an opportunity to get some attention .. by harassing Lee Terry. Very disrespectful to Tea Party events.

    Thanks to the folks who put so much effort in to organizing this event. We have some wonderful people who are representing us in Nebraska, and also in Washington. The rest we need to get rid of. The speakers were great, and now we each need to reach out and inform others.

    Outstanding event except when Jerry Odom and his few followers did his normal immature act of attempting to heckle Congressman Terry

    It was too bad that one of those at the tea party was rude to Rep. Lee Terry, as
    he was speaking. This gentleman definitely was showing his political view of this
    elected official. The situation was handled well.
    Glad the other party crashers didn't interfere too much till towards the end of the meetup.
    Good weather and site for this meetup.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
