Movement conservatives in Massachusetts and elsewhere are mourning the death of John O’Mara who led the Northborough Tea Party. He died one month shy of his 80th birthday according to reports. A regular Friday Morning Meeting attendee, John, a conviction conservative, will certainly be missed.
Details will be forthcoming but email communication among John’s friends and fellow activists suggests John’s funeral will be held at noon on Friday at the St. John the Evangelist at 80 Union Street in Clinton.
Ted Tripp of the Merrimack Valley Tea Party writes a tribute to John:
Over the Labor Day weekend, Northborough Tea Party leader John O’Mara passed away. John was a tireless worker in the Tea Party movement and was always involved in one project or another moving the conservative agenda forward. He was one of the leaders in organizing the efforts against the Legislature’s push to give driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. He founded America First Immigration Reform, Restoring America’s Greatness and more recently put together the Massachusetts Coalition to Elect Trump. His most recent endeavor, which he was working on when he passed away, was the First Annual Restore America Conference & Expo this September 17th in Boxborough. John’s monthly Tea Party meetings in Northborough would routinely draw 70 people, easily the largest in the state. He had a knack for getting great speakers and motivating his membership to take action when needed – great qualities in a leader.
