There is an important page on our website with blockbuster content, and we’re asking for your help to beef it up even more.

Go to and mouse over the “Get Involved” tab at the top of the page.  Select “State Leaders List” from the drop-down menu, and you will find a list of state leaders. It’s arranged alphabetically by state, and intentionally does not distinguish among State Directors, District Directors, Community Coordinators, or any other kind position. In most cases, each entry shows the leader’s community to help you find a FAIRtax-er close to you.

We’re asking the people listed there to check over their entry and send us any updates or corrections.  It’s important that we keep this information as up to date as possible.  But we need something more.

There’s a link near the top of the page that says “Click here to view the State Leader’s Profiles.” Click on that link, and you will find pictures and profiles for Chuck Bailey, ALABAMA, Wiley Brooks, ALASKA, Martin Sturmer, CALIFORNIA, Jade Walle, COLORADO, Randy Fischer, FLORIDA, Claude Mertzenich, IOWA, Rob Babin, MICHIGAN, Harold Vanderboegh, MISSOURI, Armando Marianetti, NEW YORK, Adam Yomtov, NEW YORK, and Laura McCue, NORTH CAROLINA.

Again, we ask these people to look over their profile and send us any updates or corrections.  But we also need pictures and short bios from all the other state leaders who don’t have a profile yet.  Your input would be greatly appreciated, and also might make good material for a future Grassroots Corner.

Just to pick the first profile, here is Alabama State Director Chuck Bailey with former Arkansas Governor, FAIRtax advocate, and TV Host, Mike Huckabee. Chuck retired from the Boeing Company after a career in electro-optics engineering, including Rockwell International and the U.S. Army Missile Command.

Chuck also retired from the Air Force as a Lieutenant Colonel after four years active duty and 26½ years in the Air National Guard.

Most of Chuck’s retirement time has been spent actively pursuing The Fair Tax Act (HR25), in the U.S. House.  In parallel, Chuck has been actively promoting The Alabama Economic Freedom Act, HB4 - Alabama’s version of a state level FairTax - in the State House.

This profile illustrates what a good profile should look like. It is short, it gives some biographical information, and it describes the person’s link to the FAIRtax.

If you are a state leader, or if you know one, I would love to receive a profile and a photo from you. I will send the material to our Database Director, Adam Yomtov, for placement on this important link.

Yours In the FAIRtax Movement!

AFFT Grassroots Coordinator & Secretary
