The Effingham area Tea Party elected officers at its meeting last week.
The new president is Todd Slingerland of Altamont. David Schaefer of Beecher City is the secretary, and Jane Willenborg of Effingham is the returning treasurer.
The party's next meeting will feature a former Effingham County Board chairman. The topic will be real estate taxes.
The group meets at 6:30 p.m. on the first Sunday of each month at Culver's in Effingham.
New members are always welcome.
