I want to thank those of you who took the time to fill out our survey. While I wish it was more, it was enough to get the data we needed to move this ship full steam ahead. This week you will see alot of big changes happening in the wake of the recent court decision. While I am sure many of these efforts will seem reactionary, I want to assure you they have been in work since I took over almost 45 days ago.
The results of the Survey will be posted in a separate post, but we have decided to have a yearly dues system that will pay administrative cost, operations cost, and legal fees. We will also take donations throughout the year for anyone who wants to contribute more.
We need to come up with at least $20,000 in our legal fund to ensure we have what it takes to see this court case go before the Supreme Court. While a few organizations are thinking about supporting, I feel like it is the charge of this organization to ensure the case is properly funded.
We will start the fundraiser for this next week. My plan is to sell off what is left of the shirts I was turned over, and start a challenge coin and lapel fundraiser. Also this week you will see a brand new website launched. A lot of the data from the old site will not be up right away, but you will see it return over the next few months.
Mike Yates, will be interviewing those who wanted to volunteer and finding a place for each of you. While we dont have alot of positions on the board, we will find somewhere for each of you to contribute.
Thanks for all your support during this time.
Michael J. Little
