A rally sponsored by the TEA Party of Gilmer County is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday in downtown Talking Rock.
Margaret Williamson, event organizer and member of TEA, or Taxed Enough Already, said the rally is a chance for “voters to be heard.”
Politicians and candidates from across Georgia have been invited “to come and listen to what their constituents have to say, rather than us listen to them,” Williamson said.
Keynote speaker Virginia Galloway, state director for the Georgia Chapter of Americans for Prosperity, plans to attend the 515 Corridor Rally, named for the highway stretching from Woodstock to Blairsville.
Talking Rock was chosen as the meeting place because it is midway between the two cities, said Williamson, adding that the invitation has been extended to folks from Dalton to Dawsonville.
