John Riotte
Local Coordinator, Albuquerque Tea Party
Albuquerque, NM

John Riott is originally from New York. He spent 20 years in the military, traveled the world, and currently resides in Albuquerque, NM.

“One thing I learned in the military is that when you know things are not going right, you step forward with ideas and solutions.

“My children, our children, deserve more form this generation than trillion dollar debts.  I joined the Tea Party for my children, my nephew, and my nieces. I joined to make a positive difference in our country’s future. I believe in the greatness of America. I cannot sit idly by while our elected leaders mortgage our country’s future.

“I believe in the principles of our Founding Fathers, I believe in our Constitution, and I believe that together; good people working toward common goals of limited government, fiscal responsibility, and a free market economy, combined with the ability of the individual, will restore our country. “
