Wayne County SCOPE Members Meeting
September 9, 2020
Wayne County SCOPE will hold its next meeting on Wednesday, September 9 @ 7 PM at the Marion American Legion. Members are asked to wear masks and practice social distancing. The Legion will be open and also the bar.
This meeting will be devoted to a vetting of potential federal and state candidates for office. Candidates have been invited to attend this meeting. Questions will be posed and members will have an opportunity to ask their own questions and respond to candidates' answers. This opportunity only occurs every two years. I hope many of you can attend and participate in the election process.
Senator Pam Helming has also been invited to speak. She is chairman of the senate committee seeking candidates to replace a number of retiring state Republican senators.
Please plan to wear a mask while moving around the room or building. The bar will be open and hopefully members will partake since the Legion does not charge us for use of the facility. No mask is needed while seated at your table. A maximum of 4 per table is allowed in order to properly social distance. Your cooperation is appreciated by the Legion's leadership.
Please continue to visit the state and chapter websites for updated information both in Wayne County and around the state. Here are the links. Note that you can access our Wayne County page directly from the state site under “Chapters" on the navigation bar.
DAVE Colburn has PROVIDED us WITH ARTICLES, USEFUL LINKS AND A CHAIRMAN’S CORNER. HE HAS REDESIGNED PARTS OF THE STATE SITE WHERE YOU CAN now FIND “Briefings” AND 2020 NEW YORK STATE LEGISLATION PERTAINING TO GUN RIGHTS. There are several useful links on THE LEGISLATION PAGE. His brand new addition is “ELECTION 2020”. It is chuck full of useful links with loads of information. Don’t miss it!
WE HOPE YOU WILL UTILIZE THE LINKS PROVIDED TO CONTACT OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS AND EXPRESS YOUR CONCERNS, ESPECIALLY REGARDING THE EIGHT  TWO-HOUSE BILLS in albany. these bills were overshadowed by health concerns during the rEGULAR LEGISLATION SESSION THIS SPRING. All are in a committee waiting for a vote to go to the floor for a full Senate or Assembly vote. IT IS VERY LIKELY THE GOVERNOR WILL CALl A SPECIAL SESSION OF THE LEGISLATURE TO CONSIDER AND VOTE ON THEM THIS SUMMER OR IN THE FALL. THERE IS PLENTY OF TIME TO PASS ANY OR ALL OF THESE EGREGIOUS BILLS INTO LAW BETWEEN NOW AND DECEMBER 31. STATE SENATOR PAM HELMING AND STATE ASSEMBLYMAN BRIAN MANKTELOW NEED TO HEAR FROM all of us.
