Every voting member should have received a ballot in their NRA Magazine, those with digital subscriptions will get a ballot by mail. Please take the time to fill out your ballot and mail it in. It drives me nuts to see magazines lying around with ballots still inside. Having the opportunity to know quite a few past and present NRA Board members, I'd like to offer my 2c on the ballot for those who might hav e questions about a daunting task- Choosing 1/3 of the folks who will run America's largest 2A rights organization...
While you DO need folks with MBAs etc, they should not make up the whole Board. As I see it, you need different types of folks on the Board. You need some folks with vision, to help set the future goals for the organization, you need managerial types, who can foresee where resources should be apportioned and plot the course to get there, you need folks with name recognition or other credentials to get you in the rooms where you need to discuss policy with lawmakers and discuss contributions with heavy hitters and you need grassroots folks who know how it gets done in the ground game. John is a good fit because he knows the ground game, and has 30 years on the NYS Conservation Council and many legislators cell phone numbers
A bit about John-
SAFE President, one of SASI's founding members and SAFE 's as well. originated and still a big part of 2A Civil Rights Conference right here on LI, met with Duwayne Gregory after the hearings and got the Safe Storage bill killed in Suffolk (we have the letter from Gregory), part of Trap & Skeet relocation committee and when Browning ignored him he wrote and filed a Minority report showing that there was no place better suited than the current facility, and many other 2A fights he's won for us. He's a tireless fighter for 2A rights. Actively serves on NRA Board and Board of Whittington Center, serves on Veterans committee in NRA and several others. USMC Vet, NRA Instructor, spread Women on Target Clinics on LI and a big part of getting the program changed from an afterthought of NRA to an integral part of NRA Training/Grassroots
all good solid folks who do a lot for the NRA
vote for who YOU want, I'm just filling in some details for folks who might not be aware
