By Morgan Chesky - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Grassroots America - We The People sent a strong message to East Texas voters, addressing the importance to cast their votes in the upcoming elections.

In a press conference Thursday, Executive Director of Grassroots America, JoAnn Fleming, stated only 4,732 people of the more than one hundred thousand in Smith County have voted since polls opened.

Fleming stated change is needed after 12 straight months of declining sales tax collections and 8 straight months of double digit sales tax declines. On behalf of We The People she urged East Texans to do more than just get mad and get out and vote.
