Two Tea Parties for the Ocean State

Monique Chartier

Further to the complaints pointed remarks of commenter TaxPayer and myself under Justin's post, the Ocean State Republican blog reports that, in fact,

There will be two Rhode Island “Tea Parties” on Tax Day, April 15th. The different times should allow anyone who wants to participate, to fit at least one of the parties into their schedule. The first will be in Providence from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM [new time] 3:00 PM TO 6:00 PM, and the second will be in Warwick, from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

The Providence Tax Day Tea Party will be on Wednesday, April 15, 2009 from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM, which will be taking place at the Rhode Island State House on Smith Street.

The Warwick Tax Tea Day Party will take place at the corner of Airport Road and Post Road, outside of the Rhode Island Republican Party HQ from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

Thanks for the link to the blog, of course.

There is also detailed information about both events on the RIGOP website.

FYI... the time of the Providence Tea Party has been moved to 3-6pm, to allow for more regular people to attend.

Thanks because of the time overlap, it is likely to DIMINISH attendance as it is likely most will not attend both events. Public relations wise that may be an error as the sizes at both event will clearly be smaller.

I agree. I don't think it will diminish the over all attendance, but I do think not everyone inclined to attend both events, actually will, because of the overlap. It would probably be preferable to have one larger party which anyone who wants to go to it, can go, as opposed to two smaller ones, but I'm not organizing either one of them. It's all up to them.
