It was reported today that The Saint Augustine Tea Party (SATP) held its annual meeting at the Village Inn, in St. Augustine, Florida, on July 8, 2014. The annual meeting is the only meeting required by the organization’s by-laws. The main order of business was the election of officers for the coming year. The Tea Party reported that the current slate of officers was reelected for an additional term. The results of the election are as follows:
Lance Thate, Chairman
David Heimbold, Treasurer

The current terms of office will expire on July 14, 2015.
The SATP was originally organized in August 2010. It has continually met, since its inception, on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month providing open speaker meeting for its members and the public at large. Once under the control of the Republicans, the SATP is now free from any political party affiliation. The SATP reports its new members are now more likely to be younger in age than in the past and Libertarians are having a greater influence.
