LP Monday Message: Don't Blame Immigrants

April 26, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Below are some things you can tell me:

1. Did you hand out our "take-a-look" flyer? Approximately how many? If you modified it, please send me your new version too.

2. If you handed out other materials, what were they, and about how many of each did you hand out?

New York LP chair offers tips on getting press coverage

from New York LP chair Chris Edes:

Get free media time. Get involved in your local Tea Party, then call the media and say you're available for interviews.

I was interviewed by the local PBS affiliate regarding the upcoming Tea Party. So was the county CFL coordinator.

As April 15 approaches I expect to do more interviews with local media. First you get one interview. Then, you call the other media up and say "I was interviewed by such-and-so media outlet, and I want to let you know I'm available for interview with you as well."
