Got a problem with the Tea Party?

In George Boardman’s recent column (July 7, Supervisors deserve a living wage), He wrote, “Perhaps for the first and last time, Eddie Garcia of the Nevada County Tea Party agreed with him (Terry Lamphier). Obviously, Mr. Boardman does not know Eddie Garcia as I do. Many times Eddie has told me how much he likes Terry and appreciates his openness and his willingness to work with all sides.

When Terry was first elected to the board of supervisors, I invited him to speak at a Tea Party function. He was warmly welcomed and stayed around until everyone had the opportunity to ask him questions.

I don’t know Mr. Boardman, but it appears he has a bias against the Tea Party. Why? The Nevada County Tea Party stands for constitutionally limited government, fiscal responsibility, respect for the Constitution and Bill of Rights and a government that answers to the people.

Mr. Boardman, do you have a problem with that?
