Update: East Texas Candidate Forums for Statewide Races

The East Texas Constitutional Alliance – of which Grassroots America is a founding member – will sponsor the following 
candidate forums.  [Note:  Grassroots America will also hold candidate forums for other statewide and local races.  Scheduling is in progress.]
All of the following candidate forums for statewide races will be held at the UT-Tyler Ornelas Activity Center, 3402 Old Omen Road, Tyler, TX.
Co-moderators will be:
Michael Kinzie:  A principled conservative, Michael has been actively involved in the TEA Party Movement since attending his first rally on April 15, 2009 in Sulphur Springs, Texas. He is a gifted writer, the founder of the Lake Fork TEA Party Patriots and the creative talent behindTeaParty911.comwebsite, which is a very informative collection of TEA Party news, blogs, and events.
JoAnn Fleming: A leader in the constitutional conservative movement for twenty-one years, JoAnn is the two-term Chair of the Texas Legislature’s TEA Party Caucus Advisory Committee – a citizen advisory board to the TX Legislature’s TEA Party Caucus. In this volunteer role, she works directly with grassroots leaders from across the state, with statewide organizations as a member of the Conservative Budget Coalition, and with legislators to develop and pass constitutionally conservative legislation and to kill “big government” legislation. She isthe full-time volunteer Executive Director of Grassroots America – We the People; a self-retired county commissioner; a sought-after public speaker; a guest political analyst for local media; a Heritage Action Sentinel; and a member of US Senator Ted Cruz’s “Kitchen Cabinet” grassroots team of advisors.
