Want an update on the RTP/City of Richmond exchange? Check Richmond Tea Party volunteer Colleen Owens’ guest post at Righsidenews.com Along with background information of the events, you can read the City of Richmond audit notification letter sent to RTP.
An excerpt of Ms Owens’ closing remarks is provided:
The Richmond Tea Party stands for constitutional adherence, and clearly this has been unequal treatment under the law. We stand for fiscal restraint, and this is a case where a mayor uses taxpayer money for his personal agenda. We stand for virtue and accountability in government and that is why we have taken a stand. We will be submitting a Virginia Freedom of Information Act request for all city correspondence pertaining to our Tea Party and its decision to audit us. We will not be intimidated and we will not back down. A Richmond attorney and fellow Tea Partier is currently reviewing our situation. Also the ACLU has also contacted us inquiring about this matter.
