ALBANY — Using the rules of a well-known leftist organizer can work just as well for organizations desiring to influence the government to stop taxing and spending, said Nan E. Swift, a campaign manager for FreedomWorks.“We don’t want anything. We want less. Less taxes, less government,” Swift said. “Alinsky understood how people worked. The rules reflect organizing principles that work.”
Reflecting on the success of the tea party events held in Albany and Leesburg earlier in the year, officials plan to spend the Independence Day holiday protesting what they say is wasteful government spending.Organizers from Dougherty, Lee and Sumter counties are joining forces to host a tea party on the Fourth of July in Plains City Park."We are all combining efforts on this one," said Mike Sabot, one of the organizers for the event. "We are expecting (the attendance) to be bigger. Anything over 1,000 we will be happy with."
