Logan Tea Party organizer unsure of group’s relavance today

Is there still a Tea Party in Cache Valley? Logan political activist Michelle King isn’t sure. Four years ago she helped organize a Tea Party group and the group sponsored several candidates in Logan’s municipal elections.

King said, like the other members, she thought government spent too much and she really liked Presidential candidate Ron Paul. But she said some of her views are different than those of most Tea Partiers.

“There’s a lot of Tea Party members who are all for war in Iran, protecting Israel and cracking down on immigration,” King said on <a href=”http://610kvnu.com/assets/podcaster/328/2013_02_20_328_8544_2867.mp3″ target=”_blank”>KVNU’s Crosstalk program Tuesday</a>. “I think that’s one part where I differ because I have a very different immigration opinion.

“I don’t think that the way that we’re involved in foreign policy is very healthy for us or the countries we’re involved with.”

King remains very interested in Logan City and is now chairman of the Woodruff Neighborhood Council. She suspects other Tea Party people have also gone on to other interests.
