More than 2,300 people filled Brandon Park in Williamsport last Saturday for the Northcentral Pennsylvania Tea Party. The non-partisan demonstration was called to send a message to elected officials that they must be accountable to the people, respectful of the U.S. Constitution, and resolved to stem the tide of rising taxes. Former Potter County resident Roger Leight, one of the coordinators, applauded the elected officials who accepted the invitation to hear the message. Among those introduced to the audience were State Senator Eugene Yaw, Williamsport Mayor Gabriel Campana, County Commissioners Jeff Wheeland (Lycoming) and Paul Heimel (Potter), as well as a representative of Congressman Glenn Thompson.
