This initiative has nothing to do with the group Oregon Tea Party PAC, it is a completely different organization. The names are confusing, but try to keep up....Rob T.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 12/02/13 – Tualatin, OR. Oregon Tea Party (OTP) today announced the launch of JiminyCricket -- a new initiative that uses the power of social media to encourage personally responsible behavior.
JiminyCricket launches with integrated website, facebook, and twitter properties. The website is located at http://www.jiminycricket.net. The facebook page is located at https://www.facebook.com/jiminychirp. The twitter page is located at https://twitter.com/jiminychirp.
On November 13th, OTP announced a new vision and mission (http://wp.me/439pg). OTP's new vision and mission is intended to positively encourage the underlying values of a personally responsible culture. The launch of JiminyCricket is an initial step in that direction.
Geoffrey Ludt, Oregon Tea Party founder, said this of JiminyCricket, “This initiative will be a voice that encourages our communities to reflect the standards we expect of our leaders, while it is very different from what people have come to expect of the Tea Party in recent times, it is very similar to some of the successful initiatives the Tea Party engaged in early on. I pray that people find it useful, entertaining, and a delight to share.”
About Oregon Tea Party:
The tea party movement began in Oregon on February 27, 2009 in response to excessive federal deficit spending. The larger tea party movement is a true grass roots movement, composed of a loose affiliation of national and local groups that determine their own agendas without any central leadership. In the past, the tea party movement has sponsored political protests and supported candidates and ballot initiatives.
