COMMUNITY PRESENTATION AT THE IDAHO STATEHOUSE - MONDAY, MAR 7, 2016
C.A.I.A. brought former mayor of DISH, TX and current Aubrey City Councilman Calvin Tillman, to Idaho to speak to residents and lawmakers about the effects of G&O on communities, from both a personal and a public perspective. (Only one legislator attended - the very day the rights-harming S1339 was passed by a large majority.) He also spoke with several local officials during his brief visit.
Highlight was dynamic guest speaker Marc McCord from Dallas, TX. Others gave updates on G&O activities in Gem & Payette Counties and protective actions here and elsewhere that citizens are taking to preserve our way of life in Idaho.
