ROVING REPORTER: Burton Tea Party

On Sunday October 25th, the boisterous 'Tea Party' movement came to Geauga County thanks to Tammy Roesch and the group 'G.O.O.O.H.' (Get Out Of Our House)

Founder Tim Cox, of Texas, explained that the mission of G.O.O.O.H. is to completely evict the current 435 members of our US House of Representatives.

The event was hosted by Matt Patrick, a radio personality from Akron's WHLO 640.

Speaking at the rally were Joe 'The Plumber' Wurzelbacher, and Doc Thompson, who both admonished the crowd to take a more active role in local politics.

Dignitaries in attendance included Tim & Diane Grendell, Sharon Gingerich, and Chardon City Councilperson Mary M. Bramstedt.

Political opinions vary widely across the state of Ohio. But events like the Burton 'Tea Party' indicate that the rowdy traditions of American democracy are alive and well.
