Announcing his departure from Harford County, Bel Air Tea Party organizer Tony Passaro sent the following email to his supporters on April 19, 2011. A copy was provided to The Dagger for publication:
Well the time for me to say my good byes has arrived.
“R&R” (my sloop rigged C&C 36) is in the water and I and Rocky and Deep (first Mate) make sail for Hampton Roads Virginia on this coming Saturday.
Until I get sorted out, un- packing and etc. I will need about 5 days to get back to my e-mail and catch up………
After Hampton Roads then on to Great Bridge Virginia and then Coin Jock North Carolina and on down the [Intercoastal Waterway] headed for tropical seas where the rum is cheap and the women friendly and the sun shines all day in a cobalt blue sky over a white sand rimmed cobalt sea …….
Though I look forward to this great adventure, I can not but help feeling somewhat melecholy. I shall miss the Town of Bel Air but most of all I shall miss my Tea Party friends with whom I struggled so valiently through so many battles to bring about change for the better in Harford County and the Tea Party Movement….I feel that I leave behind a place that is a littler bertter off than when I came here…and in the very capable hands of some pretty wonderful people….
Becoming a part of the Bel Air Tea Party was for me the crowning achievment…of my life.
I will miss the rallys, the meetings, the protests, the victories..the bus rides….But most of all I shall miss my many friends the smiles, hugs and handshakes every time we met.
The comraderie of soldiers in arms each willingly shouldering their part of the burden, each of us sharing the effort to save this Country, this land of Patriots this County we all so well love this Country we work deligently to protect, this Country we Call AMERICA………..
GOD BLESS AMERICA
