The West Chester Tea Party will hold its regular monthly meeting Tuesday, April 16th at the West Chester Volunteer Center – 5430 West Chester Road, West Chester, Ohio 45069.
Registration and networking begins at 6:30 P.M., the meeting begins at 7:00 P.M. There is no charge for attendance. All are welcome.
The meeting will be focused on "citizen activism" with Scott Landreth, the Ohio Director of the 10th Amendment Center and Chris Finney from COAST.
The Tenth Amendment Center focuses on the Tenth Amendment, which was written to emphasize the limited nature of the powers delegated to the federal government. In delegating just specific powers to the federal government, the states and the people, with some small exceptions, were free to continue exercising their sovereign powers.
When states and local communities take the lead on policy, the people are that much closer to the policymakers, and policymakers are that much more accountable to the people.
Mr. Finney is a shareholder in a firm that concentrates in commercial and constitutional litigation as well as real estate law.
Some of his associations include the Board of Directors for Constitutional Law and Board of Directors of COAST (Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes. COAST’s slogan “Our mission is to limit increases in taxes and spending to within the rate of inflation and to stop the abuse of power by government officials throughout Ohio.”
He was named one of eight "Ohio Lawyers of the Year" for 1998 by Ohio Lawyer Weekly and has been featured in the New York Times, USA Today, the Atlanta Journal Constitution and on Fox News.
