Thank you for visiting our site. We encourage everyone to get familar with our organization and members, to understand what we believe and what we don't believe. There is a lot of misinformation about Tea Parties around the country, especially in the media, and so we strongly believe that the facts will inform you as to exactly who we are and why. Most importantly, we are not a political party. We are simply a group of citizens seriously concerned about the current state of our country and its future.
Cherokee County Tea Party Association was organized in the Fall of 2010 and was active in the November election. It continues to grow and mature as a change-agent in Cherokee County and in turn the State of Alabama.
Our goal is to "make a difference" in how our county, state and country is governed according to our constitution and established American values. We are a "grass-roots" organization and believe in hard work, initiative and patriotic honesty to achieve righteous ends.
Our meetings are scheduled for the second Tuesday of each odd month (Jan., March, May, etc.) each month at 6:o0 p.m. at the FEMA Building in Leesbur, AL between the police and fire stations. The meetings are schedule to end in an hour. Informal discussions and sharing tend to go on later. Everyone is invited, so check us out.
