Default CRPA Board Candidate Petitions

Please find a prepared package of Petitions to elect 6 members of the Calguns community to the CRPA Board of Directors in the Programs & Coalitions Development Committee. The 6 are Brandon Combs (wildhawker), Ben Henslin (obeygiant), Paul Nordberg (Kestryll), Fred Oey (FastFinger), Brett A. Thomas (the_quark), and Kevin L. Thomason (Oaklander.) I'll include their bios in a following post in this thread.

Instructions:

Download the PDF package of petitions for the 6 candidates. If you have problems with the PDF Package, you can download each petition individually here. This is a fillable PDF Form. if you are only signing for yourself, Place your name in "Name of Circulator." Place 1's in "Page __ of __" to make it say "Page 1 of 1" if that is correct. Place the date in "Date Signed", your name and residence (preferably where CRPA thinks you live), and your CRPA member number as well as date of birth in the first line. Print all 6. Sign on the first line and at the bottom above "Signature of Circulator". Note that you can and should certainly circulate to any friends who are CRPA members too.

Send the form to me using one of the following methods:
1. Scan 6 (or more) pages and email to hoffmang@hoffmang.com
2. Fax to 650-264-4701 (no cover sheet necessary)
3. Mail or courier to Gene Hoffman 3200 Bridge Parkway Suite 202 Redwood City, CA 94065.

Please try to get these back to me by June 4, 2010 we have time to get everything pulled together with plenty of time before the due date. I will track the count and forward to CRPA on the 15th.

Questions:

1. How were these people chosen/why isn't well known Calgunner X on the list?

There already are other Calgunners on CRPA board committees as a committee member which usually leads to them being elected as a director. As such the list of candidates doesn't reflect folks (like Bill Wiese or me) who are or will likely be on the board. Also, due to the required geographic balance in the CRPA bylaws, we've chosen three northern Californians and three southern Californians.

2. What does "I understand that signing more than one petition for any nominee for this California Rifle and Pistol Association Board of Directors election is prohibited" mean?

You may sign one time for any one specific CRPA member who is being petitioned for. You can sign as many different petitions for different candidates for the other board openings. AKA: Yes, you can sign all 6 petitions once.

3. Do I have to be a CRPA member?

Yes you do. Your member number will be checked to make sure you are valid. Please don't sign if you're not a member. You however do not have to have been a member for any amount of time. Feel free to join today and then sign the petition (I don't think you can use a "3 month free" membership, but any of the usual paying memberships are good enough). If you do sign up to sign the petition you will need to contact the CRPA office to get your member number. If you can't recall/find your member number, you can also just call the CRPA office during normal business hours.

Bios:

Brandon Combs
Brandon Combs is the Treasurer of the Calguns Foundation, a Life Member of both the CRPA and NRA and a current member of SAF. A lifelong firearms enthusiast, his love affair with the John Moses Browning 1911 design predates his drivers’ license and often draws his attention away from the family heirloom Winchester Model 94s. Growing up in rural Fresno County, an appreciation of firearms as tools, a pastime and works of art was deeply ingrained and now takes center stage in his work to advance gun rights and culture in California. Mr. Combs currently serves as a business and claims consultant to the heavy construction industry. Previously, he served as Area Manager for two multinational engineering and construction corporations, specializing in large public works infrastructure projects for clients such as Caltrans and Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

When not volunteering for gun rights causes, Brandon enjoys spending time with his wife and two Akitas as well as visiting their ranch in eastern Washington.

Ben Henslin
Ben Henslin is an information technology professional specializing in the areas of networks, servers and security. Most recently he served as Senior Network Administrator for American First Credit Union, supporting a complex infrastructure of branch, shared branch and remote ATM locations across the nationwide CU Service Centers system. Working in the overlapping financial and technology fields, Mr. Henslin developed a keen sense of organizational structure and focused development of project milestones and program objectives. His strengths include extraordinary resourcefulness, dedication to quality, attention to timely completion and a work ethic second to none.

Mr. Henslin is both an NRA and CRPA member, a dedicated member of the Calguns Outreach leadership team, a firearms enthusiast and vocal gun rights advocate. His research and project management efforts have led to supporting documents in the fight against gun control in places like Oakland, CA and Emeryville, CA. Ben resides with his family in Fullerton, CA.

Paul Nordberg
Paul T. Nordberg is the Owner and Primary Administrator of the Calguns.net website and forum as well as a Life Member of the NRA. He has been a vocal proponent of Second Amendment Rights for 25 years, a firearms collector for 20 years and an 03 Curio and Relic FFL for 6 Years. He currently works for a private company specializing in image conversion and data archiving of vital records and real estate records for counties across the country. In addition to Firearms and Second Amendment advocacy his interests include Medieval Recreation and Martial Arts, Motorcycles, Golf and his Faith. His proudest achievement is his first and only marriage of 22 years so far.

Fred Oey
Fred Oey has worked in program development and mass communications for over 25 years, with diverse experience ranging from metro newsrooms to directing television in major-market locales such as San Francisco, New York City and Los Angeles. Mr. Oey has successfully created and managed commercials, talk shows, documentaries, sports, entertainment and other programs over his years in the industry. His extensive training in communication with audiences of different sizes and types give him a unique perspective to approach complex issues such as gun rights.

More recently, Mr. Oey has been working with new media and marketing, which he considers a different vehicle for similar communications goals. He takes pride in identifying potential markets, creating a message and generating an appropriate positive response for his clients.

Mr. Oey is a lifelong firearm enthusiast and former FFL license holder.

Brett Thomas
Mr. Thomas is the Chief Technology officer of Vindicia, an integrated payment and fraud management company. Prior to Vindicia Mr. Thomas was Executive Vice President of Technology for eMusic, joining Mr. Hoffman shortly after the company was founded. While at eMusic, Mr. Thomas led a team of sixty-five employees and oversaw the technical integration of several geographically diverse enterprises utilizing multiple platforms.

Mr. Thomas has been a professional software developer since 1989, and has management, contract and technical experience through roles at Network Associates, PGP, NCR, MCI and IBM. Mr. Thomas has particular expertise in the design and implementation of high transaction volume e-commerce systems, large-payload download infrastructures, conversion of paper documents to electronic formats, encryption and security.

Kevin Thomason
Kevin L. Thomason has a long career in the legal industry. A 1994 graduate of University of California College of the Law, he founded the first commercial legal website in 1994. Two years later his company designed the website for the largest law firm in the State of California, and later the first German law firm to be on the internet. Mr. Thomason has given over 30 invited presentations on law firm internet marketing, and has authored over 70 published articles on the topic.

In 2002, after a stint as a Marketing Manager for a top 50 law firm, he began practicing law for a small law firm based in San Francisco. In 2008 he founded one of the handful of law firms in California that practice firearms law.

Mr. Thomason is an avid shooter, motorcyclist and car enthusiast. In addition to holding the position of Secretary for the Calguns Foundation, Mr. Thomason is an active member of the National Rifle Association.

Don't you get that title appear under your username when you become a Life Member of CGN?

The Admin title, or in my case, Head Janitor, over-rides other titles in vBulletin.
I could edit it of course but I'm fine with Head Janitor.
It's more descriptive anyway!

We can vote for one (or some) of these people and not all though, correct? There are two people on that list I absolutely will not vote for but the rest have my vote

All 6 petitions can be signed; you are only prohibited from signing a petition for the same person more than once.

I just talked with someone right now at that number, and he said "8-10 business days to get payment processed, and membership card in the mail". I would keep calling. I wouldn't expect anything back until the 20th. I won't expect anything back for me until the 31st. You could always log into the CRPA site as well to check on your status.

When I upgraded to NRA Life, I think I waited almost a month for everything to be finalized.

Erik.

We need your help, Calgunners. If you are not a CRPA member, sign up today and help us make gun rights a lasting reality by voting for members of your community. We need signed petitions, and with your help we can create a much more effective CRPA.

Update 5/24/10: We need everyone to help us make this happen. Petitions are coming in but not enough to ensure a victory.

Please all, if you are a CRPA member, download, print and email/fax/mail these petitions ASAP. If you are NOT a CRPA member, invest $22 for gun rights and join today - call their office to get your membership number for these forms. (Annual through life members can vote).

-Brandon

Form Instructions

Note: This Adobe PDF file is a “fillable” form; it can either be printed on paper and filled in by hand or typed directly into the form in Acrobat or Acrobat Reader. All fields you type into the first page will automatically be copied to the other 5 petition pages.

1. Fill in the “Name of Circulator” on each of the 6 petitions.

2. Unless you collect more than 13 CRPA members’ signatures on each page, each page of the form should read “Page 1 of 1” in the top right corner (the form can have only one signature - there need not be more than one to be a valid petition).

3. The “Date Signed” will be the date the CRPA member on that line signs the petition.

4. Print the name of the CRPA member signing the petition under “Printed Name”, and then the same person should sign on the same line in the “Signature” column. Note: Even if you are the “Circulator” at the top, you’ll still need to completely fill out one of the lines for signers.

5. The signer should type or print their current residence address in the “Residence Address” column next to their printed name.

6. The signer should print their CRPA Membership Number to the right of their address in the “CRPA Mem. #” column. If you/they don’t have the CRPA Membership number, call (714) 992-2772 and ask the office to look it up for you.

7. The signer should print their date of birth for verification purposes in the “Date of Birth” column at the far right.

8. The “Circulator” of the petitions must sign at the bottom of each petition in the “Sworn To” line.

9. Scan and email, fax or mail/overnight the signed and completed petitions (and direct any questions) to:

Piece of cake- done!

If there is anyone in the Santa Cruz area that can't download or has difficulty with the process; if you would like to sign my downloaded petition forms, please let me know and we can set up a rendezvous point and time.
Get 'er done!

FYI - I only signed up with CRPA last week. Just saw the petitions today so I called to get my membership number. While my credit card is still being processed, meaning I'm not official yet (not unusual for small non-profits), I was able to find out my pending membership number. Now it's on to the petitions.

Thank you for the support! If we can each reach out to just 1 current member or make 1 new member, we can put a voice on the ballot this summer and make our presence felt in Sacramento.

Any chance you could post each petition separately? Newer Macs handle pdf's natively, without Adobe, but can not open a bundle of pdf's (apparently). If not will have to dust off the old laptop...wherever it is!

Signed up for the CRPA two days ago and got my member # today. Six signed petitions have been emailed to Gene.

Let's get Calgunners running this important cog in the machine of CA to win our freedoms back!

FYI everyone, if you join do it ASAP to be able to get your member number in time. I joined at noon and they won't have my member number until Tuesday afternoon and Gene wants this all in by the 4th. So don't dawdle and wait until the last day or two

I signed up last night. Called to get my member # but the lady said I have to wait until it's is processed. Up to a week she said. Hopefully get it before the fourth.

Can we get some feedback on how close, or far away we are?
