This year marks the fourth annual GOP Picnic at the AJ Jolly Park in Campbell County. This year is going to be a real bell ringer of a picnic as we understand candidate for US Senate Matt Bevin will be attending. No word yet on if his opponent is planning to attend, he was last seen ushering his followers away from Fancy Farm in his rented buses. The Campbell County picnic is complete with hot dogs, hamburgers and rides for the children. The park has a great lake for fishing and shelters to get out of the sun. Expect to hear some speeches by candidates, local officials and others given to gab. Wear your Tea Party gear or your candidate's gear.
All registered Republicans and our friends that would like to change their registration to Republican are invited. Registration cards will be available at the picnic. This picnic is free to all and will include:
Free food by Jack's Catering
Free all-day bingo with adult and children's prizes
Free pony rides for the kids
Free Balloon Jumper for the kids
Free Face Painting
Cornhole Tournament with 1st and 2nd Place Trophies
Many of our Republican elected officials will be there.

The screening of FrackNation has been canceled. Alternatively we will be screening "They Come to America".
The Campbell County Tea, 7:00PM, Thursday, July 25 will present the movie FrackNation at the Campbell County Administration Building, 1098 Monmouth Street, Newport, KY. This movie is a direct response to the false press and fear mongering being put out by environmental wackos against the production of natural gas using new technology. Read about the movie and read the reviews here. This technology has the potential to make America energy independent. This is a well documented movie that shows how mis-information is used to form pubilc opinions. This movie will help explain how international politics as well as local politics impacts your standard of living by driving up energy costs.

By now everyone has seen the commercials about “Blocked by the Bridge” which were even run during yesterday’s UK-UL basketball game $$$! There is a lot of information on this issue which we will be getting out to the public in the coming weeks. We will print 10,000 handouts for our members to distribute, we are going to do TV interviews and use several other outlets to clarify the facts on this issue.
The first thing to do is to contact our state legislators using the Green Sheets and tell them NOT to support the Public Private Partnership. Our legislators must pass a resolution in order for this to happen, and we can stop that by flooding Frankfort with Green Sheets. Please call and tell the operator to inform your legislators, The Northern Kentucky Caucus, and all state legislators that you are opposed to the creation of the Public Private Partnership. The Number is 1-800-372-7181. The operator is on duty Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Invite your family, friends and neighbors to do the same.
When the legislators arrive at their offices we want several thousand Green Sheets on each desk telling them not to support this movement. Again tell the operator that you want the Green Sheet to go to your Senator and Representative, The NKY Caucus and all state legislators. We were told several times by visiting elected officials that piles of Green Sheets on their desk get their attention.
Remember this, the Public Private Partnership is nothing more than a “Special Taxing District”. They will not be under the direction of elected officials, they will be able to change the tolls/taxes when they want to, and we will never get rid of them once they take over this project. Please help to stop this movement now!

All the discussions are coming to an end, the pros and cons have been voiced by both sides on this issue and I believe the reasons to vote AGAINST is very compelling. Just this past Friday in the Enquirer, 19 properties were listed for "Commissioner's Sale" which means 19 people lost properties for some reason. The economy in our county may have improved for some, but we have a long way to go before the un-employed, including those who gave up looking, drops down below 8%.
Another reason is simply the need. Just looking at the library's own map, under 15,000 residences fall into the area surrounding this branch, not enough to support this size of a facility. The design is way too expensive, the need for a basement never proven, the reason for such large meeting rooms never provided. Is this going to be a local library or is it a large community center?
We were told they would listen to the communities voices when they held their 6 meetings, but we were lied to. As everyone who attended these listening sessions know, there were more questions than answers, more against than for, and lots of suggestions to decrease costs shot down on the spot by the library. Now they are on record saying that the wording of the ballot issue does not mean what it says, and if they want to build, even if it goes down to defeat, they might build anyway.
This board and the director want our tax dollars to spend as they wish no matter what we say and this must stop. We must push our legislators to correct the un-democrat process of Unelected Bureaucrats having the power to Tax and Spend without accountability to the taxpayer. The Tea Party does not acccept this process and will fight in Frankfort to make special taxing districts accountable.
