Anchorage Tea Party Event To Educate Alaska
A forum on two public policy issues important to Alaska:
1. Obamacare: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)
The Anchorage Tea Party (ATP) will be hosting a forum on two important public policy issues from 6:30 to 8:30 PM on Monday, August 20, 2012, at the Centerpoint Building, 3801 Centerpoint Drive in midtown Anchorage. The program is free to the public and donations to cover expenses will be accepted.
At 6:30 PM Dr. Ilona Farr, MD, a lifelong Alaskan, will share her expert knowledge of the PPACA’s public policy implications.
At 7:15 PM Mr. Willis Lyford and Mr. Rick Rogers, spokesmen for the “Vote No on 2” campaign, will present a review of Alaska’s coastal zone management program and address the damage that will be done to Alaska’s economy and Alaskan jobs if the proposed coastal management program, Ballot Measure #2, is approved by the voters during the August 28, 2012 primary election. Mr. Lyford is directing the Vote No on 2 campaign and Mr. Rogers is the Executive Director of the Resource Development Council for Alaska.
Written questions from the audience will be answered as time permits after each of the above presentations.
From 8:00 until 8:30PM, in an effort to make the ATP more responsive to the needs of the conservative community and to be more effective when addressing those needs, the Anchorage Tea Party will conclude the program with an open meeting. Members and prospective members are invited to attend.
In addition, Republican Party Chairman-Elect Russ Millette has been invited to briefly share his vision of the future for the party and the state.
The Anchorage Tea Party is a network of citizens which exists to inform, educate, attract, and involve the people of Alaska on the core foundations of constitutionally limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets.
