Tea Party Boise looking to attract younger members, gain respect

From left to right, Sen. Todd Lakey, R-Nampa, Rep. Darrell Bolz, R-Caldwell, and Rep. Lynn Luker, R-Boise, are members of an interim legislative committee examining the public defender system in the state.

New Boise Tea Party Boise president, Chad Inman, is planning on expanding the party by recruiting younger members and using all forms of media, according to the Idaho Statesman.

Currently the board for the party is at three members. Inman wants it to be at 10. He has also developed teams that focus on certain issues including immigration, land board issues, government intrusion, and other topical issues.

The group is also looking to attract younger members by offering some sort of scholarship program. Inman said the average age for the group is over 60, which can be a problem when trying to grow an organization for the long haul.
