Last night Mark Meckler resigned as a National Coordinator of Tea Party Patriots.
His resignation follows months of discussions and good-faith differences on how best TPP can serve the Tea Party movement. He felt it necessary to step aside and pursue other endeavors. We extend our best wishes to him. He has done many good things for the movement.

The Tea Party movement involves millions of Americans. No one person or even small groups of people are responsible for the movement’s success and vitality. Tea Party Patriots is successful because a great many people like you who have given so much sweat and toil toward our goals of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets.
The entirety of TPP remains committed to you with all the tools and support you need to extend the movement’s success throughout 2012 and beyond. We intend to expand that support which Tea Party Patriots provides.
In the coming weeks you will see a renewed focus on repealing ObamaCare, reducing Federal over spending, reducing out of control regulation, and crony capitalism.
Working together the movement and Tea Party Patriots will continue to grow stronger and to build an enduring grassroots organization that increases public support for our ideals of fiscal responsibility, limited government, and free markets.
For Tea Party Patriots,
Debbie Dooley, Jenny Beth Martin, Sally Oljar
