NC Candidate for Congress Bill Randall Takes Responsible Stand on Florida Tragedy

Bill Randall
Bill Smith, Editor: Bill Randall is a conservative Republican candidate running for the North Carolina 13th District seat in the US House of Representatives. This week, he boldly stepped into what some would call consider a proverbial mess.   Many would have advised that as a candidate for Congress and being himself a black American, that he should have remained politically silent or at least not call a press conference. However, I disagree.

If Bill Randall had remained silent, it would have gone against the very nature of his family heritage and his years of walking and breathing "duty, honor, country." One does not show leadership by sticking their head in the sand.

In the below video you will see a man committed to principles and a man who evidences a clarion cry for tempered responses as well as sane reasoning. Of course, Bill Randall was very well prepared for this moment to boldly share his  positions before this press conference. He has already gained the respect of senior military officers and civilians in his past. Randall retired as a Command Master Chief (E-9), the highest rank for a Non-commissioned officer in the Navy, Randall served for 27 years. As a retired Air Force officer who spent 3 years attached to the US Army and then 2 years after retirement working with the US Navy, I can assure you that  military operations do not operate efficiently or effectively without the leadership of the senior non-commissioned officers and the top kick in Navy units is not the person getting the salutes and  "yes sirs."  It is the Command Master Chief.

So, what did Randall do that deviated from the traditional campaign? First, he held a press conference on one of the hottest topics in the news - the Trayvon Martin Crisis.  He actually put to shame the prior response by the President of the United States and the responses by those who pontificated vitriol and prejudgement of a tragedy.  He shines a light on the people who claim to care for the hurting family members but who in fact seek self aggrandizement  and advancement of their personal and organizational agenda. Finally, he schooled and educated the press.

Bill Randall  press conference addressed the results developing as a result of "all out media false reporting" and run-down activists who are seeking to profit from this tragedy and who are actually promoting hatred toward other people. In the following video, you will see and hear a balanced level headed response from Bill Randall as he addresses the current situation in Florida after the shooting of Trayvon Martin and answers the questions of the media, some of them already biased.



In closing, I do not wish to focus on me but to illustrate a truth.  As a former national political director working with 23 candidate campaigns for Congress in the same election cycle, I may have advised caution - let Florida's problem be Florida's problem.  But then again, how can reasoned men and women stand by and allow unreasoned men and women to use a tragedy for distorted purposes which would set our country back years with respect to race relations. And then, we have the lame street media false reporting and the editing of tapes to make things appear different from the facts.

So, I salute Bill Randall for taking both a stand which may even be uncomfortable for him in coming days. He has evidenced that leaders do not duck and run and are there to take care of those whom they are responsible for.  And that includes sharing truthfully and openly about the events of today.  Members of Congress need to be level headed.  I encourage those in his Congressional  district to consider Bill Randall as a man you would be proud to have not only represent you in Congress but also proud that he would be coming home as also a friend and neighbor.  I know I would.

As many readers know, I rarely endorse candidates via my articles on the ARRA News Service.  Well, if the following is an endorsement - so be it.    If I was a resident of North Carolina's 13th District, I would be campaigning with and for Bill Randall. Thank you Bill for not taking the safe road and for showing leadership!
