Again, not trying to be negative but please take this as some positive input.
This is an example of the message drift that happens as a movement matures. Our message doesn't change. Stick with your original vision.
Keep it as your main focus of every decision you make. Make every decision fit in the long term goal of that vision. Anything that takes you off that vision, recognize it as a distraction and remain focused on the vision, stay on the path to the goal.
It's what brought us all together. Bench Casell-Fire *****. It's easy for us to agree on. It's simple and what the vast majority can get on board with. If ***** is fired, we didn't waste money on the billboard. The billboard would generate tons of free publicity.
People donated money to SOC to help push Clark to FIRE *****, not to give to the Boy Scouts or other worthy charity.
