Who We Are

The Goochland Tea Party is a vibrant, grass roots group of area patriots who believe a better community results from a limited government that practices constitutional adherence.  We share energy and effort to effect awareness and change on local, state and national issues and provide opportunities for citizen involvement in keeping the Republic.

Our five core principles are:

  1. Virtue and Accountability
  2. Limited Government
  3. Constitutional Adherence
  4. Free Markets
  5. Fiscal Responsibility

We are a non-partisan, grassroots community of volunteers who are committed to advancing and strengthening the Founding principle that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are God-given rights guaranteed to every individual by the Constitutions of the United States and the Commonwealth of Virginia. We believe that government derives its power from the people and that government is established solely to protect these rights.

We believe that local governments, communities, and individuals are best suited to serve and represent the needs of the people.  Most importantly, we believe that citizen participation in the political process is a fundamental necessity for good government.  If our principles resonate with you, we strongly encourage you to Get Involved.  Click here to read our Code of Conduct.
