"Flirtin' with disaster ev'ry day!..." So declared the theme song for his Bill Post Radio Show (the site has been taken down for now), first on AM1430-KYKN and later on the Internet over his (short-lived) radio network. Through the show he befriended many Republican legislators and other leaders and obviously stoked, what up to that time had been latent, a desire to do politics. When State Senator Larry George announced his intent to retire from the legislature and State Representative Kim Thatcher announced her intent to run for his seat, it did not take Rep. Post long to seize his opportunity. That was 2014
A consistent and unwavering warrior for conservative, limited-government policies, Rep. Post and his colleague HD 23 Rep. Mike Nearman have earned the reputation for casting the most "No" votes on Democrat legislation. Until last year, that was the extent of what they could do. Then came the walkout to stop disastrous "Cap & Tax" legislation. His determination has resulted in a spot on the leadership team as Assistant Deputy. Along with increased caucus duties, Rep. Post will join fellow Marion County Republican Representatives Jami Cate and Rick Lewis on the House Special Committee on Wildfire Recovery, continue his position on the House Committee on Agriculture & Environment, and swap his position on Judiciary for the House Committee on Business and Labor.
