[Fcalerts-list] NRA BoD Recommendations

Please reply to feedback at (using appropriate email

Well it's that time of year again and those of you who are Life Members or
have been regular members of NRA for five or more consecutive years should
have received the "Ballot Issue" of your NRA magazine this week.

We are receiving a lot of requests for recommendations of who to vote for
and so we respond with the following based on the principle that Change is

History tells us that all, or almost all of the current Board Members
running will be reelected, making it highly unlikely that more than two or
three new members can win and those that do are almost guaranteed to be
among those nominated by the Nominating Committee.

That being the case, we recommend that you "bullet vote", casting your
ballot with as few as just one, but no more than three or four names
marked. For a variety of reasons, we recommend you vote only for candidates
you personally know and respect and one or all of the following three well
qualified candidates:

*_Johnny Nugent_* is highly recommended by activists in his home state of

*_Curtis Jenkins_* receives similar endorsement from our friends in Georgia

*_David Jones_* has been a prominent activist and leader in Missouri for
many years

*We are voting for only those three.*

If you feel you must vote for more than just three, other candidates who
are not current members of the Board include:

Charles Fox
Steven Schreiner
Fred Edgecomb
Cleta Mitchell
Al Cardenas
James Dark
Ken Elliott

Please do not vote for any of the several long-time members of the Board
and celebrities that are up for reelection. Skip the old standards in favor
of a few new faces.

Please share this information - post it on forums, in gun shops and at
ranges, e-mail it to your NRA friends.

The Board of Directors is supposed to set policy and hold staff accountable
for following those policies; instead the Board is being managed by the
staff. Every new face elected to the Board offers the potential for a shift
away from that status quo.

We hope you find this helpful.
