Our mission is to help reign in the enormous inefficient and unaccountable New York State government by partnering with various specialized reform groups; to address the growing constitutional violations our legislators regularly engage in; and provide the means by which the citizenry can actively engage in the process of bringing about reform.
Any good organization that hopes to succeed, depends on various individuals performing specialized functions. Any good reform movement needs political operatives, policy wonks, and activist citizens, ready and willing to mobilize as needed. In Western New York, the group Primary Challenge serves as the POLITICAL ARM, the group Free New York serves as the POLICY ARM, and as evidenced by the large number of concerned citizens that have turned out to attend tea parties, we have manpower. Tea New York then, along with partner groups and under the leadership of people such as Rus Thompson and Carl Paladino, is the CITIZEN ACTION ARM.
