On Saturday, April 30 volunteers from the Bayshore Tea Party, Clean Ocean Action, and others joined Congressman Frank Pallone for an annual beach cleanup in Belmar New Jersey. Volunteers from the Bayshore Tea Party wore T-shirts saying “Team Bayshore Tea Party” to distinguish them from other volunteers. A jogger on the boardwalk stated “Wow, that’s something you don’t see often, the tea party and Frank Pallone together.” In a photo op with Congressman Frank Pallone founder of the Bayshore Tea Party Barbara Gonzalez said “Look Congressman something we can agree on!” To which Congressman Pallone sighed and put up his hands and nodded his head.
When asked why they were here to help, Bayshore Tea Party member Charles Measley stated “People have a miss comprehension that we are against the environment, when in reality it is just the opposite! We believe that we have to be good stewards of the environment, and show individual responsibility.” Even though Congressman Frank Pallone and the Bayshore Tea Party normally disagree on various issues this is one where they have common ground.
