LEWISBURG, TN – TWHBEA officials President Steve Smith and Sr. VP Walt Chism continue their heavy handed oppression of the California TWHBEA members in their efforts to vote on the removal of Director Christy Lantis.
Here is a January 9, 2014 letter from TWHBEA attorney Jacob Mathis:
The letter apparently reflects Smith and Chism’s fear that the California members will poll themselves to show America how strong the support is for the removal of Director Christy Lantis. To do so would further highlight the dictatorial and arbitrary actions by Smith and Chism to limit the participation of the California members in an attempt to “protect” sore Big Lick champion Christy Lantis.
Big Lick supporters Steve Smith and Walt Chism are apparently having difficulty coming to grips with the fact that they are presiding over a “PRO SOUND” breed association.
California voted 79% for passage of HR 1518/S 1406, Prevent All Soring Tactics Act.
The rest of the United States overwhelmingly supports its passage, 63% to 37%.
Presently, there are 252 Representatives and 42 Senators co-sponsoring the legislation.
The King Steve and Sir Walt insensitive decision is expected to draw an immediate reaction from the California Directors who are attempting to exercise their rights under Tennessee state law and the TWHBEA By-Laws.
