Dr. Earl Johnson, founder and president of ‘The Texas Constituents’ Tea Party and the Crispus Attucks Tea Party, was the keynote speaker at the Kingwood Area Republican Women’s luncheon held at the Kingwood Country Club on Wednesday Jan. 19. Johnson emphasized that he wants to get out the message of the Crispus Attucks Tea Party. The mission of the party is “To build a strong base of conservative Black entrepreneurs, elected officials and constituents that provide Black conservatives a viable way to express and implement their conservative values politically.” They are non-partisan and they will “call it like it is” and want to make elected officials responsible for their actions. The Crispus Attucks Tea Party is setting up satellite groups and going into “the belly of the beast,” or communities where they can engage people who feel disenfranchised with the government. Johnson asked for the assistance of the Kingwood Area Republican Women’s group to help spread the message that the party is about the “character and content” and that is more important than color. The Tea Party values include, but are not limited to God, family, country, business and personal responsibility. Madison Maddux, a senior at Kingwood Park High School, spoke briefly prior to Johnson. Madison was sponsored by the Kingwood Area Republican Women’s group in 2010 to represent KPHS at Girls State in Austin. There Madison learned first hand about state and local government functions and participated in mock sessions of congress, party and city meetings. Madison thanked the group for their support and said she greatly appreciated the experience. Vice President Wendy Alexander conducted the meeting in absence of President Betty Newton.
