The Town Criers assembled January 27, 2014 at the entrance to the Marsh Creek Country Club in St. Augustine Florida, to greet Attorney General Pam Bondi’s fund raising guests. The Town Criers are a committee of the St. Augustine Tea Party. [See “Is Pam Bondi complicit in Obamacare promotion?” January 26, 2014 in this publication] “The purpose of the demonstration was bring attention to the Attorney General’s failure to protect Florida citizens from the Federal Government’s health care over reach,” a Tea Party spokesman explained.
Town Crier presence finds public support
Numerous people entering Marsh Creek stopped to engage the Town Criers. Overall, it was a supportive encounter. In addition, the effort permitted a “sign and flag wave” for the motorists passing by. The response was positive, for the most part, though some cars failed to respond. A veteran Town Crier commented, “We are receiving less support standing along the roadway than we get downtown in the historic district. Face-to-face is a much more positive experience. However, the support here is not so much about our signs, as it is about our flags. The Gadsden flag receives overwhelming support wherever it’s displayed.”
