TEA Party to sponsor tax protest

Staff report

CANFIELD

The Tri-County TEA [Taxed Enough Already] Party is sponsoring a tax protest at 6 p.m. Thursday on the Village Green.

The event, to take place on the last day to file income-tax returns without an extension, is all about taxes, says its organizer.

“Everyone onstage will be talking about taxes and how they affect communities and small businesses,” said Anita Fraser, president of the Tri-County TEA Party.

Dan Rivers, a talk-show host for 570 AM WKBN radio, will emcee and speak.

Others scheduled to speak at the event: Donald K. Allen and Bill Johnson, both Republican candidates for the 6th Congressional District; Dan Moadus, a Democratic candidate for the 17th Congressional District; ex-U.S. Rep. James A. Traficant Jr.; grocery store owner Henry Nemenz; Columbiana County Republican Chairman Dave Johnson; and Larry Everly, a tanning-salon owner.
