Past MCRGO President Rod Collins Resigns
It is apparently my turn now to get vilified. This started some time back when I raised questions about actions taken by certain leaders in the organization, but intensified recently when I privately questioned the election committee about the appropriateness of David Felbeck handing out campaign literature for "preferred" candidates for the most current election.
Many of you know me and know the time and energy I have put into building this as a grassroots organization. It hurts to see so many of the activists driven from MCRGO by the actions of the leadership during the past year.
I am not an officer or an employee of MCRGO or the MCRGO Foundation. I am writing this as a concerned, founding member of the organization.

As of today I am resigning my position as Ingham, Eaton and Clinton Chapter chair.
During my volunteer term as chapter chair I was proud that my chapter;
1. Staffed the local major gunshows.
2. Conducted a candidate informational meeting with a good turnout, even though the announcements were delayed until after the meeting.
3. Secured two of the local clubs as MCRGO affiliates.

"Rod I'm sorry to see this as it shows us that things are not changing for the better. It's very distressing to see members such as yourself that no longer feel that this org is where they should put their energies. Why is it that the founding members are getting so disenfranchised about what is happening that they are resigning positions or leaving the org?"

"Without going into personalities, the talents required to *start* an organization and lead it in its early formative years are vastly different from the discipline and organizational talent required to bring the organization to maturity."
