2003 Convention Set for Nashville, July 25-26

Boulder, CO - The America First Party today announces that its Second National Convention will be held July 25th and 26th, 2003 at the Tennessee Airport Marriott in Nashville, Tennessee.

National Chairman Dan Charles said, "This convention will provide an opportunity for Party activists and leaders to prepare the way for electoral success in 2003 and 2004. Our governing body, the America First National Committee, meets regularly via conference call. This annual in-person meeting will provide a forum for our officer and committee chair elections and other annual planning. Our convention delegates will hear from our candidates, and other outstanding speakers. They will also debate additions to our platform that will cover issues we do not yet address. We anticipate a good time for all who come."

On the America First Party's one-year anniversary, April 15, 2003, members of the AFNC chose between sites in Edison, NJ and Nashville, TN. The Convention Committee had conducted a thorough exploration of many cities and venues.

A core party principle is the promotion of a "Buy American" policy. One of the selection criteria that was never in question was American ownership of the host hotel. America First Party of Florida Chairman Roger Simmermaker, author of the book "How Americans Can Buy American", said, "American companies pay three times the taxes as foreign owned companies, reducing the tax burden on everyday Americans. American families lose every time a foreign company is patronized instead of an American one."

This will be a working convention. However, there will be speakers scheduled that will be informative and appealing to the members and guests. The convention is open to the public and the press, although seating is limited. A Saturday night banquet is open to the public. Tickets are required and will soon be available at reasonable cost. We encourage those interested in observing the Party as it works to put together a viable alternative to the Republican and Democrat parties to visit our web site for more information.

JD Jones, Chairman of the Tennessee America First Party stated: "The members of the America First Party of Tennessee wish to thank the National Committee for selecting Tennessee to host the Second Convention of the America First Party. Because Tennessee is centrally located, it assures maximum participation from delegates across the country and promotion of the Party. Nashville is the home of country music and a multitude of entertainment."
