SUBJECT OF THE MEETING;

PROVIDING HOSPITAL
AND EMERGENCY ROOM SERVICES IN GILMER COUNTY

 

The MEMBERS of the Tea Party of Gilmer County have always stepped forward to help our community.  


Who are the MEMBERS?  Since we do not have any application forms and don’t charge membership fees or dues, everyone that wishes to be a member IS a member.   So welcome members!

Now it is time, once again, when we are asking all our members, the citizens of Gilmer and surrounding counties, for your help in one of the most pressing and important issues facing our community.

 

PROVIDING HOSPITAL
AND EMERGENCY ROOM SERVICES IN GILMER COUNTY

 

The details and options will be provided Monday night.  But, in a nutshell, we have options, but they cost money and will require incurring debt.  This is not a decision the County or Board of Commissioners or Building Authority is willing to make without public input and support.  It is your decision and if we think this is doable then I think it should be put on the ballot as a referendum.

 

I know it is easier to sit home and watch the Olympics.  But when you slice your hand open trying to cut a frozen bagel or your child splits their head open falling out of a tree, you may regret having to drive all the way to Jasper…….

 

This is your county and your medical services and not having a hospital in the county is not only going to affect your ability to sell your home (remember the majority of buyers are retired and proximity to medical services is VERY high on their list of concerns when selecting a final home) but the not so apparent costs are adding up rapidly.  Our police and EMT staffs and the wear and tear on our emergency vehicles is already taking a toll having to transport everyone to surrounding counties.

 

Come Monday night and hear how it will or won’t affect YOU.

REPORT ON IMMIGRANTS NOW LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) has published a report documenting the approximate total legal and illegal immigrants and their children in the United States at this time.  It is quite interesting and should be made known to the American people.

This report should put to rest the question of how many immigrants are residing in the US, the percentage that are illegal, and the impact that the rapid increase of both legal and illegal immigrants have had on our nation’s infrastructure.  It should be pointed out that the Tea Part of Gilmer County is not anti-immigrant.  Rather we welcome immigration but only if it follows current U.S. immigration laws and is limited to the extent that our infrastructure can adequately assimilate the influx.

National Anthem like you’ve never heard it before.

500 high school choir students sing the U.S. National anthem in a high-rise hotel. Each night before curfew, they gather on their balconies to sing the Star-Spangled Banner from the balconies of the 18-story atrium at Louisville’s downtown Hyatt Regency as part of the Kentucky Music Educators convention. You can’t help it but get goose bumps when you hear them sing.
