SANTORUM HEADLINES TEA PARTY’S THIRD
ANNIVERSARY LIBERTY FORUM FEB. 25

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Feb. 16) –
Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum will headline the Chattanooga
Tea Party’s Liberty Forum on Saturday, February 25. The forum, which celebrates
the tea party movement’s third anniversary, will offer citizens a chance to
listen to and question candidates and leaders in national, state and local
government offices.

Santorum was one of
several invited presidential candidates and first to accept.

The event will run
from 1p.m. to 4p.m. and will be hosted at Abba’s House, at 5208 Hixson Pike in
Hixson, TN.

“We already have more
than 20 confirmed officials and candidates at every level of government. Senator
Santorum’s decision is just icing on our anniversary cake,” said Chattanooga Tea
Party President Mark West.

Santorum currently
leads in several national polls of GOP candidates. The former U.S. Senator from
Pennsylvania is well known for his commitment to traditional conservative and
family values, and he helped author and pass key reforms, such as the landmark
Welfare Reform Act.

In addition to
Santorum, confirmed attendees include US Congressman Chuck Fleischmann and
3rd District challengers, Weston Wamp and Jean Howard Hill; State
Senator Bo Watson, State Representatives Vince Dean and Richard Floyd, State
Rep. candidate Mike Carter; County Mayor Jim Coppinger and County Commissioners
Larry Henry, Tim Boyd, Joe Graham and
Mitch McClure, challenger Marty Haynes; Sheriff Jim Hammond, County Trustee Bill
Hullander; City Council members Carol Berz, Pam Ladd, Andrae McGary, Peter
Murphy and Manny Rico; School Board members Mike Evatt, David Testerman and
Rhonda Thurman; and U.S. Senatorial candidate Zack
Poscevich.

Select speakers will
address their vision for each of the different levels of government and there
will be an opportunity for voters to interact with candidates and elected
officials. The CTP will also offer
refreshments to celebrate the tea party movement’s 3rd
Anniversary.

“We launched our local
group with a tax-day tea party event April 15, 2009,” West said. “Our event was one of 900 tea
parties that day, a dramatic increase from the 50 tea parties on the first
nationwide tea party event held six weeks earlier on February 27, 2009. Most of us who first met in early 2009 to prepare for that
rally are still involved and contributing to our citizen activism. We’ve become
close friends. And our focus has never wavered from demanding that federal,
state and local governments adhere to their constitutional foundations, follow
fiscal conservatism, and support free markets. We are pleased to be joining with
ElectionDayTeaParty.com and dozens of other Tea Party groups around the nation
in celebrating our movement’s anniversary.”

Although there will be
no cost to attend the event, donations will be welcomed to help defray
costs.

The Chattanooga Tea
Party is a non-partisan grassroots organization seeking to educate and inform
its members and the public at large of the fundamental issues and struggles our
country is facing. We are committed to energizing voters to become engaged in
the process of solving the nation’s problems.
