Members of the local Tea Party organization say they want to be heard.
They have held several rallies this year , including a couple in front of 18th District US Congressman Zack Space’s office.
"I admire the fact that there are people out there who care enough to get involved and to familiarize themselves with the issues. I admire the passion, " says Space.
But Tea Party organizers say they’re not happy about Space’s lack of availability to meet or speak with them. Yet, Space says he has spoken with various local Tea Party organizations over the last few months.
"I try very hard to communicate with everybody I can in a large rural district, " says Space.
Space serves a total of 16 counties in the 18th district.
