Delegate Candidate Neil Parrott’s Top 5 – Tea Party

Happy New Year!

Thank you for all you have done this past year to work to help preserve our freedoms, our constitution, and the American way of life.  Our work in 2009 has awakened the American people to the need for action, and has alerted many to the bad bills that the current administration and Congress have tried to pass with lightening speed. 

This email contains 5 points:  (1) Top Stories, (2) Next Steps, (3) Chris Shank’s Announcement, (4) Neil’s Campaign Update, and (5) Thoughts on 2010.


The Herald Mail newspaper in Hagerstown recounted the top news stories of 2009.  The Hagerstown TEA Parties and the Health Care meeting with Senator Cardin were both noted.  Our efforts have not been going unnoticed – Let’s keep the momentum going!


To start off the New Year, we are planning to join with other groups all across Maryland to go to Annapolis on the first day of session, Monday, January 13, at 7 PM.  We will let our legislators know that we want a solid fiscal plan, no more debt, and no tax increases to pay for this administration’s projected 2 billion dollar shortfall in next fiscal year.[1]  Tomorrow we will send an e-mail with details regarding the trip and sign-ups to join us for a bus/van ride to Annapolis.


One of the main speakers at our April 15th Tea Party rally has decided to run for State Senate against a sitting Republican.  MD Delegate Chris Shank is having his kick-off announcement this Friday, January 8th , at 5 PM, and has invited anyone who would like to support him, or just learn more about his candidacy, to attend.  The event will be held at Parkway Neuroscience, 17 Western Maryland Parkway in Hagerstown.  For more information about the campaign or the event, please contact Corey Stottlemyer at


With the help of many dedicated volunteers, I have begun to run my campaign for MD Delegate to stand for family, freedom and financial responsibility.  I am humbled to have so many great people supporting me, and would be honored to follow Chris Shank as the MD 2B Delegate.  On January 25th, I will be having a fundraiser with former Governor Bob Ehrlich at the Clarion in Hagerstown.  For more information about the event, or to sign-up as a volunteer in the future, please visit my website at or e-mail me at


As we look to the year 2010, we know that it will be a pivotal year for the future of our country.  In this year, we will be able to go on the offensive while continuing to play good defense.  We will continue working to put a stop to the government takeover of health care, resist Cap and Trade legislation, fight for freedom on the airwaves and against the so-called Fairness Doctrine, and stand against a second federal bailout that would further degrade the dollar through unnecessary loans that our country cannot afford.

We will also have a chance to expand our efforts by campaigning and voting for federal and local candidates who will protect our freedoms and follow the constitution.  Working alongside Americans in every state, we could see an end to Nancy Pelosi’s tight-fisted leadership in Congress and a return to solid financial principals and core American values.

Locally, we will be able to vote for a new Governor, state senators, and state delegates.  We will be able to select county leaders and school board members.  This is an exciting time, and a time when we need to be engaged in the process. 

The National TEA Party movement also has several events planned for 2010.  As these plans become more concrete, we will do our best to keep you informed and to help provide a way for you to get involved, locally and nationally!

Thank you again for all you are doing for our country.  Together, we can all make a big difference in 2010.  There is strength in numbers, and we look forward to working with you.  God bless you and your family this new year, and God bless America!


Neil and April Parrott
