Local Tea Party mom pens book

Warsaw mom Monica Boyer, co-founder of Kosciusko Silent NO More, has released her first book about her personal political journey with the Tea Party.

"Not on My Watch – A Mom's Fight for the Heart and Soul of Her Country" explains the frustration Boyer felt with the direction of the country and the small active steps she began to take in her community to make a difference.

"She couldn't have grasped how these small steps would change a state and ultimately, the nation, as the TEA Party movement she helped lead, retired six-term Indiana Senator Dick Lugar," a press release about the book said.

Boyer had always been a faithful voter but had not become politically active. She is now the president of Kosciusko Silent NO More and co-founder of Hoosiers for a Conservative Senate. You can purchase the book at www.monicaboyer.com for $16.95 in paperback or $26.95 in hardback.
