Groups hold tea party rallies on tax day

By Staff
Two groups held "tea party" rallies in Brewton Thursday, offering prayers for the country and promising to action at the voting booth in November.
Brewton resident Bo Marshall urged the nearly 50 people gathered to take action. "Write a letter, lick a stamp, carry a sign, make a phone call," he said, "and stand up. It's time we take back what's been so hardly worked for."
At the Escambia County Courthouse, a group led by state Senate candidate Danny Joyner prayed for people to participate in government. Joyner said the meeting was non-partisan but said he wanted participants to stand up for their rights.
