Tea Party Tax Day Rally Set for April 15
Moore County's tea party group is hoping for a large crowd to attend its Tax Day rally April 15.
This will be the third year that the group has held an event in front of the Southern Pines post office.
Two years ago, an estimated crowd of 1,000 supporters attended the rally. Last year, that number dipped to about half, said Dee Park, Moore TEA Citizens coordinator.
"We have greater strength when we are together," Park said. "We invite everyone to come and we want everyone to wear red, white and blue and bring signs telling our legislators to cut expenses and balance the budget."
The Tax Day event will last from 4 to 7 p.m. It will be the 17th rally or event Moore TEA Citizens has taken part in since January.
Last year, some members of the Moore tea party group went to Washington, D.C., for a rally, which organizers say hurt attendance at the local event.
