Tea Party Boise looking to attract younger members, gain respect

Rep. Neil Anderson, R-Blackfoot, says it would be useful to have a full accounting of all federal funds going to local school districts, not just the federal funds that are appropriated through the Legislature annually.

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.
