The first Central West Virginia Tea Party Meeting was held April 1, 2010 with about 40 people present. The meeting was attended by a group of concerned citizens that live and work alongside each of you. We are from all walks of life; small business owners, stay at home Moms and Dads, teachers, construction and trade workers, farmers, counselors, and blue collar workers. We are Democrats, Republicans, Independents and many who have never been active in politics before. This is much larger than any single issue or political party. WE ARE AMERICANS first.
