I couldn't let our guys risk being under the tyranny of another ASHI run licensing board (I hope KREIA understands this). NACHI members in our other 49 States, Canada, Singapore, Europe, Bahamas, the NACHI Charitable Foundation in MD, and InterNACHI are all indirectly adversely effected by such ANTI-NACHI/ANTI-Consumer legislation. I won't go into the NJ thing again here but we all know what happened there. A real embarrassment to poor Governor McGreevy.
Anyway, after throwing up, I confess... I went ballistic.
I figured (incorrectly) that someone bought a politician and so went into action 3 days ago to retaliate.
In these past 3 days I:
Set up a Consumer Action Group.
Got our Anti-trust attorney to start preparing law suits.
Hired a private investigator.
Rented office space in KY.
Asked for HICAG's support at www.consumerprotection.ws .
Registered the domain name bribewatch.org
Started building the website BribeWatch.org It is only in its beginning phase: http://22.214.171.124
Ordered Hatch Ad Agency to create full page ads. They really aren't a political ad agency but they came up with a couple killers.
Built KY section so as to utilize the publicity of our 3.3 million hits/month site http://www.nachi.org/stats.htm
Hired an investigative reporter to write a story about political corruption in KY.
Set up KY-based grass roots organization.
Anyway, come to find out tonight that Senator Tapp is already working on fixing this bill so that NACHI, which has a strong presence in KY, isn't excluded.
My sincere apologies to Senator Tapp. All I hear is good things about him in KY. I'm very pleased to hear that KREIA, an organization I very much respect, is already working closely with the Senator on our behalf and on behalf of the KY home buying public. Thank you KREIA.
I grew up in Pittsburgh. I have family in WV and KY. My relatives were all coal miners. I should have known better. I've been out in the North East too long I guess.
Anyway, I think KY shouldn't let outsiders come in and run KY. Toward that end I am personally supporting KREIA any way I can. Not just because they are in KY, but because they have the best stand-up guys in their association including NACHI members Erby, now Michael Patton, and especially Michael Green.
Therefore I am offering any inspector who lives in KY free all-paid membership in KREIA, KOI (NACHI's KY Chapter), and NACHI.
I am paying for any inspector in KY to join all three. I'll send you my personal checks for you to pay all your membership fee/dues.
I will pay all fees/dues for the first 100 inspectors who want membership in all three great organizations. You have to be an inspector. Yes, Michael Greens little helper qualifies.
I don't want anyone to worry I'm stacking the deck so these funds (my own personal money) are available on a first come, first serve basis. Anyone can avail themselves of this money. I'll ask for nothing in return other than request that you act according to what you feel is best for your industry. No strings.
No NACHI money will be used. I'm offering you my own personal money.
I want KY to be free of outside influence so this offer is only available to inspectors who actually reside in KY. Not retroactive.
Any inspector wanting to join all 3 can just email me at email@example.com so I can get you this money.
I know many members outside of KY are going to think this is a big mistake and that I should launch the nukes now in retaliation. All I can say is trust me. I trust KREIA and our fellow KY NACHI members. They in turn trust the Senator.
Again, I am very sincere in my apology, my personal offer, my trust in KREIA, and my faith that this will all work out.
