Alabama State Senators Scott Beason (R) from Gardendale and Cam Ward (R) from Alabaster will speak with the Rainy Day Patriots at their monthly meeting in April.
The Rainy Day Patriots will meet on April 22, 2013 from 6pm to 7pm at the Homewood Library. The Homewood Library is at: 1721 Oxmoor Road. This meeting will be in the Large Auditorium.
Sens. Beason and Ward had been scheduled to speak to their January meeting, but that meeting had to be cancelled at the last minute due to a snow storm. The 2013 Alabama Legislative Session is underway and the Senators will recap and look forward to what is left of the Legislative Session.
The Rainy Day Patriots stated goals for this session include: the passage of the Informed Voter Act, the complete repeal of the Common Core Standard Initiative, the protection and preservation of our Second Amendment rights, the passage of the Alabama Courts Act, and the protection of healthcare freedom per the recent Alabama Constitutional Amendment.
Rainy Day Patriots Founder Zan Green said in a written statement, “Tea Party groups are by nature independent entities. As individual citizens are independent thinkers and doers, so is the basic level of citizenry action groups. Those that believe in God given individual rights protected by our Country’s Founding Documents can act no other way. Trying to fit all liberty minded, independent thinking groups into one slot will never work. While working together on certain projects can enhance an outcome, one person or several people cannot corral the sentiment of each independent group.”
