Lindsay Hodgdon, Candidate for THEIA Board Member, Region 2 

ldh3-2My name is Lindsay Hodgdon

I am running for reelection for Region 2 of Texas Hunter Education Instructors Association (THEIA).  I was appointed to the position of regional board of directors for Region 2 midterm during the last election cycle.  With only half a term completed before having to run for reelection I would like the opportunity to finish the job that I have started and I am seeking your vote for reelection.

I am an active TPWD Hunter Education Instructor

It is my vision to continue the long traditions and support of helping the Hunter Education Volunteer Instructors and Texas Parks & Wildlife Department Hunter Education program.  Anyone who might wish to contact me please reach out to me at info@texastrainingcrew.com  with any and all questions, concerns or suggestions.

I come from a long history of hunting, fishing and consider myself a  general outdoorsman.  All though my wife who is an active Volunteer Hunter Education Instructor generally out hunts and out fishes me I can assure you as a family we are committed to serving the Volunteer Instructors of the state of Texas and I am proud to represent Region 2 to ensure that North Texas is represented well with THEIA and TPWD.

Thank you for the opportunity to present to you here my desire to retain my position as Regional Board of Director for Region 2.
