I sent the message below to Sean Fagan, as I understand you and he are working on the Storm the Hill event. Please read and I would like to talk to you and Sean if possible.
I don't think I met you yet, but I have worked with Jim Tomasik and Marilyn Rickert in the past with my wife Carol. We were on the program in the Midwest Rally in Columbia,Mo last year and met Phil Hinson during that event. We were part of many activities last year with FairTax Nation, FairTax.org, and various State groups (NC, Florida, SC, Georgia, and Missouri). We started the Grass Roots Freedom Ride for FairTax that takes place in 2010, which FairTax.org adopted and set up a Convio program to track and promote the involvement for this year's ride.
Unfortunately, a lot of our involvement and activities had to be sidelined in 2009 when we opened the Grass Roots Cafe in Horse Shoe, NC last July (a visible FairTax business model), but Carol and I are now recovering and beginning to pick up the pace on the program.
We will be in DC for the Storm the Hill event, and I would like to talk to you and Phil about working together and participating in the event. I think we add a lot of value and exposure with the FairTax Bike, the Grass Roots Freedom Ride, and other groups we are part of (TEA Party nation, Goooh, Sons of Liberty, etc.).
Are you and/or Phil available for a phone call? I think my ideas and thoughts are best expressed verbally, and would be most efficient rather than just exchanging emails. In any case, I look forward to bringing more excitement and participation in the Storm the Hill event however it works out. This is any exciting time for all of us, with a lot of work to do.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Grass Roots Freedom Ride for FairTax
Phil - I am District Director for NJ 8. Today I met with Congressman Pascrell's Economic Policy Advisor and made a presentation for the FairTax. She asked who sponsored the bill and I said John Linder. She indicated she would reach out to his office to discuss it further. I spoke to Sara Showers in Congressman Linder's office and alerted to look for the call. I will you keep apprised of my progress.
