IMPOTENT FLATTER CAMPAIGN EFFORT ALLOWS TWHBEA TO GO SORE – DRACONIAN BY-LAW AMENDMENT APPROVED VOTER TURNOUT MIRRORS PAT STOUT POLL

LEWISBURG, TN  –  After a stumbling inept effort, the  Flatters suffered a crushing defeat on the TWHBEA By-Law amendment changes by a vote of  1,165 “FOR” and 425 “AGAINST”    according to  an October 20, 2014 letter from Gwinnett CPA firm released today.

BYLAW01AA

As forecast by www.billygoboy.com on September 12, 2014,  the By-Law amendment effectively eliminates 40% of the Directors representing in the Black States.

And it puts the sore Big Lick even more on an island in the stream of the equine world, and the public perception of the animal cruelty associated with the breed.

Last week,  North Carolina rejected the sore Big Lick, and there are now 16,599  signatures on the Change.Org Petition to Cancel Big Lick classes.

The public opinion of the United States of America is reflected in 305 U. S. Representatives and 59 U. S. Senators co-sponsoring the PAST ACT which will end the  sore Big Lick.

THE 2014 TWHBEA BY-LAW VOTE NUMBERS TELL THE STORY

TWHBEA went all the way sore because the Flatters led by Keith Dane, Maryland Director and HSUS official,  did not mount an effective campaig necessary to defeat the proposed By-Law change.

To be successful in politics, you have to be able to do two things:

  • Get your people out to vote.
  • Be there when the votes are counted.

Sadly, the Flatters did neither.

The Pat Stout Poll success provided the road map to success.

The resources and expertise were there for the Flatters to win the By-Law election, but the Flatters did not avail themselves of any of them.

The Flatters did not:

  • Target their voters.
  • Get their people out to vote.
  • Get a “Flatter Flyer” out on time.
  • Create an effective “Flatter Flyer”  (no graphic and no slogan)
  • Mount a phone tree and email campaign in the States where the Sound votes were located.

The reason for the Flatters biting the dust was not an outflow of Sound persons leaving TWHBEA.

It was nothing but incompetence,  lack of organization ability or know how in getting the job done to win the election.

The eligible to vote membership in 2013 was 6,950, and in 2014  (according to Gwinnett), it was 5,813.

That’s a 1,137 member reduction, 16%, but that left 5,813 eligible to vote.

The remaining 5,813   voter number was more than enough  prospective voters to provide a defeat for the draconian By-Law proposal IF Keith Dane and Company had organized an effective campaign, which sadly was not done.

STOUT POLL    26% TOTAL VOTES 1,819

There were only 20 votes difference in the turnout on the PAST ACT POLL and the TWHBEA By-Law initiative election.

BY-LAW VOTE  1,165 “FOR” –  465 “AGAINST”  1,590 TOTAL VOTES

STOUT POLL     63% TO 37%
BY-LAW VOTE   73% TO 27%

The turnout, 26% vs 31%, was very similar.

MISCELLANEOUS OBSERVATIONS:

  • Big Lick supporter Licker  Denise Rowland is NOW a TWHBEA Director.  Ms. Rowland religiously attends every Executive Committee meeting, and is fervent in her Big Lick beliefs. She also supports Horse Slaughter, and the consumption of horse meat as human fare.
  • Flatter  Keith Dane was re-elected to another term as Maryland Director, but when his term expires,  his home State of Maryland will no longer have a TWHBEA Director due to the By-Law amendment being approved.
  • Flatter  Jan Sousa was elected as Montana Director.
  • Licker Charles Gleghorn, former TWHBEA President, was elected a TWHBEA Director.
  • Lickers Ty Irby and Larry Lowman were elected TWHBEA Directors.
  • Steve Smith side kick Sr. VP Licker Walter Chism did not run for election as TWBHEA Director.
  • Russell Keyser who works for sore Big Lick Trainer Charlie Green in Shelbyville, Tennessee ran for TWHBEA Director from Germany.

  • Nathan Jackson finished last in the Tennessee Director election getting 61 votes,  3%, out of 1,792 Tennessee votes cast.

Nephew Eugene says the Flatters “Coulda Woulda Shoulda” won the By-Law vote, but if you can’t get your people out to vote, and you are not there when the votes are counted, you really can’t expect to make much showing.  

And they didn’t, and that  is exactly why the Flatters lost the TWHBEA By-Law amendment.

Radar feels like the “The Horses” got let down by the people who were supposed to be looking after them.

And that’s the way it is.
