Howard County Conservatives will host a Tea Party rally from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Heart of the City Park.
The event is informal. Those attending may want to bring refreshments and lawn chairs.
â€śThis is an opportunity for all citizens to become better informed on the critical issues facing our country and what they can do to make a difference,â€ť said Bo Fryar, event organizer.
Special guests will be State Rep. Jim Landtroop and Dr. Donald May. Local conservative candidates will also be present at the rally, according to Fryar.
â€śThe concern of the Tea Party movement is excessive government spending and taxation,â€ť said Fryar. â€śOur mission is to attract, educate, organize and mobilize our fellow citizens to secure public policy consistent with our three core values â€” fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free markets.â€ť
Heart of the City Park is located in downtown Big Spring, north of the Howard County Courthouse.
