I received the email below from Joel McElhannon, which he asked me to post here to clarify what happened with GON.
The use of GON’s endorsement on a mailing I did for Brian Kemp was inappropriate and I take full responsibility for it. I misunderstood certain comments and used the endorsement when I should not have.
The mistake was entirely my fault. I have called Steve Burch and apologized. Steve is a true leader and in my opinion the most important voice in our state for our sporting heritage. I value his friendship and greatly respect his leadership and personally feel awful that I have caused him or GON any trouble.
Steve has graciously accepted my apology, and has proven yet again how great a man and a leader he is.
I encourage all who read this to take a moment to visit GON’s website, sign up, and become a part of this very worthwhile organization.
