Mission Statement and Purpose:
The mission of the Lapeer County Tea Party Patriots is to engage citizens
and provide avenues for participation in the political process. Our goals
are to prevent wasteful spending of tax dollars, to reduce the size of
government and its bureaucracies, and to hold accountable those we elect to
represent us. This will be accomplished by attracting, informing, and
mobilizing all who share these goals, regardless of political affiliation.
