The intent and purpose of the Local Lodge 1725 Legislative Committee is to actively be involved in the process of political education. This is done in a nonpartisan way, to ensure that the interests of our members, the working class of our country, are being best served by our elected officials on Local, State, and Federal levels.
Several areas are involved. Goals range as simple as a left turn arrow at the intersection of West Blvd and Billy Graham Parkway, to interviewing candidates running for office, to reviewing bills from the House and Senate. Issues addressed stay within the agenda of items affecting health & safety, human rights, issues affecting jobs, etc. The committee remains clear of personal issues, as well as issues that really have no bearing on members of our Local as a whole.
Charlie Hines (Chairman)
