Finger Lakes Tea Party plans April 15 rally

PENN YAN—The Finger Lakes T.E.A. (Taxed Enough Already) Party met at the Yates County legislative building, Monday, March 29 to plan its April 15 rally in Penn Yan.
The rally is scheduled to be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., April 15.  It will start at the former Chevrolet dealer parking lot on Elm Street (next to Rite-Aid) and then go down Main Street to the courthouse lawn.  The event is expected to draw people from Victor to Watkins Glen.
Sandy King, coordinator, said the group wants to get involved in government, speaking with representatives and candidates.  She explained one of the aims of the movement is to get term limits put into place.  King explained this tea party movement originated from the 9/12 project, started by television host Glenn Beck.
The March 29 meeting drew in 96 people, and not just area residents.  The meeting was for planning the rally in Penn Yan.  There will be one more meeting before the April 15 rally, scheduled for April 12, at the Benton fire department, at 7 p.m.  Tom Reed, candidate for Eric Massa’s former congressional seat, and Carl Paladino, candidate for New York state governor, will be at the meeting.
King said after the rally the group will continue to hold meetings.  She explained they will continue to vet candidates seeking office.  King added the group will talk with Brian Kolb about the State Constitutional Convention, and how it could be moved up to 2012 from 2017.
