8TH ANNUAL INDEPENDENCE DAY TEA PARTY!
It’s that time of year again. Nebraska Taxpayers for Freedom again will protest the treatment of taxpayers by officeholders in Nebraska and Congress. “We continue to protest against taxes and illegal immigration,” said Doug Kagan, NTF president, “because elected officeholders continue to anger us with high taxes, higher debt, excessive spending, burdensome regulations on businesses, and undeserved privileges for illegal aliens.”
With themes of ” No Taxation without Representation” and “No Illegal Immigration without Representation,” taxpayers will rally on Saturday, July 2, at Walnut Grove Park, 150th & Q Streets, Omaha, from 1 PM to 4 PM.
Keynote speakers will be Att.-Gen. Doug Peterson, Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert and 2nd District congressional candidate Don Bacon. Those attending can visit and meet with conservative state and local candidates and officeholders.
Our tea party also will feature patriotic music, contests, drawings for prizes, and a Liberty Tree. Please join us on Saturday, July 2 with your family, friends, and neighbors.
Mixed Results in the May 10 Primary ElectionVoters defeated the unneeded Papio NRD $91 million bond issue (email firstname.lastname@example.org for our issue paper on alternatives).
Gen. Don Bacon won his GOP congressional primary.
Mary Jane Truemper handily won her primary but must face liberal Marc Kraft in the Dist. 5 county commissioner race. Unfortunately, liberal Clare Duda won his GOP primary for District 7, probably because 2 conservative challengers split the vote.
In the legislative races, we apparently lost conservative Nicole Fox in Dist. 7 and Pat Borchers in Dist. 39. Sen. Dave Schnoor came in 1st in the Fremont area, and conservatives Mike Hilgers won in Dist. 21 in Lincoln and Joni Albrecht in Northeast NE. Conservative Dan Watermeier, unopposed, won re-election in Dist. 1. A challenger beat liberal incumbent Jerry Johnson in the Wahoo area. Another challenger beat RINO incumbent Les Seiler in Dist. 33, a GOP challenger beat incumbent liberal Sue Crawford in Bellevue, and challenger Tom Brewer walloped incumbent liberal Al Davis in NW Nebraska. The biggest thrill was seeing conservative Ian Swanson beat the stuffins’ out of teacher union pawn Rick Kolowski in Dist. 31. Conservative Steve Erdman placed 1st in the open seat in Dist. 47. These primary winners must also win in the general election in November.
