I plan to arrive about 1:30pm should you need any assistance with last minute set-up, unless you advise me to arrive earlier. Looking forward to working with you and the rest of the Flagler county Fair Tax volunteers.
Hi Robert - It was great to hear from another Lowry! My geneology takes me to County Down Ireland (Cork). Robert Miller and Anna Hugh Lowry came to the US in the early to mid 1860s with 8 sons. all of whom settled in the midwest. My grandfather was one of those 8 with most of his descendants residing in mid Missouri. Don't know if that is enough to determine a connection, but it might be possible. Our mid MO fairtax group is small - but that will not defeat our drive or purpose. My Lowry ascendents were all politically inclined - and my conviction to Fair Tax is in some part a way of keeping the tradition alive.....Thanks for your note! Liz Lowry
When you said "Even though we tried we were never able to interest most of our local volunteers in becoming members of CFFTG" are you talking about the meetup group (ie, flager people didn't want to join the Central Fl meetup?) Or did you have a meetup group dedicated Flagler specifically? I'm sorry...I should know the answer to that! But I've been a little ditzy the last few months working on some professional licensing.
We do have a FLORIDA group, but you guys in Flagler would have little interest in what we are doing on a local level in CFL, but we are all still linked by the FTN site as an umbrella. I love this platform. If you prefer not to have a local Flagler group that's fine. But I have 130+ people here in CFL that I'm trying to pull over and I believe the way to do it is to keep a cohesive local group. There will be some inevitable duplication but that's ok too. The main thing is to do what works to bring as many people under the umbrella as possible, as quickly as possible!!
You need to register with the Florida Fair Tax group page on this site. Click on the groups tab and scroll down to Fl. It is on page 2. You might recognize someone in the picture. Contact all those in your area to sign up also.
This site was designed and managed by FairTax volunteers to serve the needs of FairTax advocates by providing a place to share ideas, find resources and create new opportunities with the goal of passing the FairTax HR 25.
I can't wait for your next FairTax broadcast!
Thank you for your support of the FairTax movement!
Welcome Robert to the network. Glad you joined. Please familiarize yourself with the site and get involved. We want to see great things happen for the Fair Tax in 2009. Thanks for sharing what you are doing in the Florida. It is exciting when we see what is going on elsewhere. For too long we thought we were working this thing alone. These network sites are doing wonders for bringing us together.
The Flagler FairTax group will be doing a radio presentation of the FairTax on the new ABC affiliate WNZF Tuesday, January 20, 2009, at 9:00 - 10:00 AM. It may be heard on 1550AM, 106.3FM or the streaming broadcast at WNZF.com. If available please listen and comment.
