2014 NRA Board elections
Got my ballot. I know almost all the people involved, but to sum things up briefly:
Directors who I think are absolutely indispensable to the organization:
J. William Carter
The first three are firearm attorneys who serve on Legal Affairs Committee (Bill Dailey and Curtis Jenkins also serve on Legislative Policy Committee). Patricia Clark is a competitor who serves on or chairs five committees in that field. Bill Carter serves on committees ranging from competition to law enforcement to finance, and yes, is the son of Harlon Carter.
Directors that I think are very important to the organization:
Bob Viden, John Cushman, David Bennett, Joel Friedman, Allan Cors, Tom Avras, Anthony Colandro, Ken Blackwell, Todd Rathner, (sheriff) Peter J. Printz, Carl Rowan, Roy Innis. Most of these are long-serving, experienced folks and lifelong activists.
Here are Col. Brown's recommendations. They overlap with mine except in one case.
If anyone has their own favorites, comment away!
