Rockland Tea Party protest held in New City

Dozens of people celebrated Independence Day by protesting against high taxes and government spending in New City Saturday.

More than 100 people turned out for the Rockland Tea Party rally held in front of the Westchester County Courthouse. Participants signed petitions that will be sent to state and federal officials.
