Group Plans Tax Demonstration Today
Moore County’s tea party group is expecting a large crowd to be on hand today for a planned demonstration.
Moore TEA Citizens will reprise its well-attended Tax Day demonstration in front of the Southern Pines post office. The event drew a crowd estimated at 1,000 people last year.
Moore TEA Citizens coordinator Dee Park said she is expecting another big turnout this year.
“There’s going to be a big crowd again this year,” she said. “We’re excited about that. I think people are going to be making signs — some are already hard at work, thinking about what they want to say that day.
“We’ll have the megaphones out, probably more than what we had last year because so many people want to speak, sing and salute the flag, and generally let Washington and Raleigh know how we feel about what’s coming at us.”
The Tax Day event will last from 4 to 7 p.m.
Also today, other Moore TEA Citizens will travel by bus to Washington to take part in the national Tax Day demonstration, which includes a series of activities at the Capitol, Washington Monument and congressional office buildings.
