Americans for Prosperity: Mark Your Calendars

January 26, 2009

Wow, January has been quite a month!
The 1/13/10 March on Annapolis was a huge success. Many of our Baltimore County members took advantage of the four buses that we coordinated and made their voices heard on Lawyers Mall. Nearly 2500 citizens gathered that cold night with a clear message that “Enough is Enough”.
On January 19th, Scott Brown shocked the country by winning the special election in Massachusetts held to fill the United States Senate seat held by Ted Kennedy (the People’s seat!). His election has really thrown a monkey wrench into the plans to ram through health care.
Also on January 19th, the Baltimore County council voted to exempt itself from any meaningful pension reform. Councilman Kevin Kamenetz bill passed by a 6-1 margin with only Joe Bartenfelder voting against the bill. Kamenetz later told Patuxent Publishing reporter Bryan Sears that “IT’S TIME TO MOVE ON”. Apparently, Councilman Kamenetz underestimates just how strongly this issue resonates with our members and most voters who will obviously have the last word on the issue.

Move On? We’re Just Getting Warmed Up!

Our next scheduled meeting will be held on Tuesday night, February 2, 2010 (one week from today) at 7:00 PM at the Towson branch of the Baltimore County Public Library. In the near future we will schedule additional chapter meetings around the County in Dudalk, White Marsh, Owings Mills, and Catonsville to accomodate the growing interest in our organization.
At our 2/2/10 meeting we will discuss hosting a series of town hall meetings on the issue of pension reform that will culminate in a Tax Day Tea Party protest to be held on April 15, 2010 at Patriot Plaza (the Courtyard behind the Circuit Court building) 401 Bosley Avenue, Towson, MD 21204.

Please forward this email along to all of those who share your commitment to promoting liberty and prosperity through limited government and free markets. Invite at least one friend to our next meeting.
