These people ARE definitly OK! G SMITH is a member of my local area MV
club and has been solidly behind Jim GILMORE, to the extent that
President Lee HOLLAND hasn't replied to his questions.
It's quite obvious, especially from the way the Board put in that
requirement to discourage member's By-Law suggestions, that the majority
of the board has no interesdt in making the MVPA anywhere near a
democratic organization.
Mr Buck, Garrick & Kenton are deserving of our support and need us to
vote the others OUT and put in people who can work progressively with
the present three, more open, Board members.
