NRA Board elections overall
I've posted on several candidates, but want to discuss some more, and also my theory of voting. The ballot issues haven't come out yet, or at least mine hasn't hit the mailbox, but a voting member will probably be able to vote for about 29 directors out of probably 35-40 possibilities. I know there are folks who "vote against" -- that is, figure out how many they cannot vote for, say six, and decided on those six, and vote for everyone else. I never do that--the danger is too high that someone I considered really vital to the organization, and would have voted for as #1 or #2, will be beaten by someone I thought was OK but important, and would have voted for as #36 or 37. Instead I vote for the handful of people who I think very, very important to the NRA.
I've posted a few before, but would like to add:
Curtis Jenkins. A very good fellow. He spent 16 years in the Georgia House of Reps, with a continuous A+ rating from NRA, and authored the nation's first bill protecting firearm manufacturers against harassing lawsuits. He is an incumbent, and serves on the Legislative Policy, Legal Affairs, and Finance Committees, plus the NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund. He's also an NRA Certified Rifle and Shotgun Instructor.
Charles Cotton. Incumbent, and serves on the Legal Affairs and Bylaws and Resolutions Committees, plus the Civil Rights Defense Fund. Operates several pro-gun websites, and active in the Texas State Rifle Association.
Patricia Clark. Incumbent, serves on the NRA Airgun, Youth Programs, Finance, Smallbore Rifle, Competitions Rules and Programs, and Silhouette Committees. Received the Sybil Ludington Freedom Award for promotion youth shooting. She's pretty much indispensable to the competitions and youth aspects of the organization.
