COAST has made its mark in southwest Ohio through aggressive and creative grassroots citizen activism for 13 years.  The Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity is a national organization that is taking citizen activism to a new level by training and equipping conservative activists across the nation with tools and networks to achieve the change they seek.  Together, we have joined with the West Chester Tea Party to present Citizen Watchdog Training tomorrow in West Chester.  We hope you can join us.  Details follow:

Saturday, August 18, 9am-5pm

 Join the West Chester Tea Party and COAST in welcoming the Franklin Center For Government and Public Integrity for their Citizen Watchdog Training.  Ohio and our nation are in a fiscal crisis.  You've heard the egregious examples of waste, fraud, and abuse on a daily basis.  We can no longer afford to sit by and wait for the government or mainstream media to fully inform the public about what's going on behind closed doors.  The time has come to stand up and take action.

Please join us at 9 am on Saturday, August 18, at the West Chester Tea Party training facility to learn how you can get involved to hold our elected officials accountable and set this county on a better path for future generations.

In the training you will learn:
-How to use investigative reporting tools and skills
