Below are a few pictures from our September 16, 2010 meeting with special guest Dr. Kermit Staggers speaking on the U.S. Constitution.
The next meeting of the South Dakota Tea Party Alliance will be Thursday September 16 at 6:30 pm at Comfort Suites on Elk Vale Road.
In addition to regular business updates, our special guest speaker will be Dr. Kermit Staggers. One of the leading minds on American history and government in South Dakota, Dr. Staggers is a stalwart champion of constitutionally limited government.
He is an esteemed Fulbright Lecturer, currently serving as Professor of History and Political Science at the University of Sioux Falls, and has traveled to 40 foreign countries and taught American history in Kiev, Madrid and Nuremberg. He received his Ph.D. in American History from the Claremont Graduate University (California).
Dr. Staggers also served South Dakota and the nation as an Air Force Intelligence Officer, a Sioux Falls City Councilman and a state Senator, and narrowly lost his bid for Mayor of Sioux Falls in April of this year.
There will be more information about the Constitution Challenge program, and we will have political yard signs on hand to help you support your favorite limited government candidate.
Be sure to come and invite several friends. Together, we are an encouragement to one another…and a strong statement to those who are entrusted with protecting our freedom.
