A personal note from Linda:
I am thrilled to continue this chapter in my fight for Second Amendment Rights as I once again take my place at the seat of the National Rifle Association's Board of Directors. I am very honored and humbled that the voting members have shown the confidence in me by their overwhelming vote to allow me to continue the good work that I have started with the NRA in my first 3 year term.
I would like to take this time to thank former State Representative Jim Aslanides and my fellow Buckeye Firearms Association’s leadership team. They were the catalyst that set me on this journey of fighting for our Second Amendment Rights. It has been a fantastic journey of learning, legislating, enlightenment and friendships. Without them, I would have a lot more spare time on my hands but a whole lot less fun!
Thank you to everyone who supported me for the past year during the election cycle. Thank you to all who circulated petitions for me, who campaigned across the country for me and special thanks to the friends that I have made along the way and thank you to all who voted for me! I am very honored and promise to continue to uphold the values that the National Rifle Association is based upon.
