In an email The Wilson County Tea Party issued a statement that they will be disbanding, effective immediately. Member Sherrie Orange wrote that with a small core group of volunteers, they have run the Tea Party for three and a half years.
“We have always hoped that others would come forward to help us, but this has not been the case. Although we’ve gotten much verbal support and our supporters have grown dramatically since 2009, few have believed in our cause enough to come forward and devote the time and physical presence necessary to show the strength in numbers needed to force positive change in our federal and state government,” she continued.
“Everyone in this core group is tired and, as a result, we have made the very difficult decision that we can no longer continue running the Wilson County Tea Party … We wish all of you well and want to thank those who have helped us along the way.”
