Response from a Ca State Senator
Posted March 26, 2002 - 04:08 PM
Dear Mr. Clark,
Thank you for advising me of your concern about the Off-Highway Vehicle Fund and the presence of Mr. Paul Spitler on the OHV Commission.
As an off-road enthusiast, I have steadfastly opposed diversion of OHV funds to non-OHV purposes. Be assured that I will continue to do everything I can to prevent that from happening this year.
I'm very concerned about Mr. Spitler's presence on the OHV Commission. As head of a group suing the Bureau of Land Management over OHV use, he appears to have a distinct conflict of interest. Although Mr. Spitler is not subject to Senate confirmation at this time, I will certainly discuss our mutual concerns with my Senate colleagues and with Senate President John Burton, who is responsible for Mr. Spitler's appointment to the Commission.
Senator, 35th District
Anything we can do to support Senator Johnson (and the other senators that see the injustice of land closures and other attacks) will help. Anything. Send a letter in support, write Senator John Burton, write Gray Davis, volunteer to help out in a campaign, write the White House, Secretary of the Interior, etc. Start by joining BRC, ARRA, CORVA, etc and go to PMAUST's post on "Speaking of the Law" and send a letter there. But please do something. Thanks for listening. And thanks for helping.

The AMA doesn't work BECAUSE they don't have a public idea and debate forum like ThumperTalk. It shows! They are incredibly out of touch. Bryan & Steve: lead us into the 21 century!

1)Get the facts!
2)Inform the public. Few people can actually stomach injustice.
3)Ally your forces.
4)Take the battle TO the enemy: get the SOBs where they live: in the ears of our legislators.
Iraq and Afganistan didn't fare too well, did they?
I KNOW big_G's catchin' all this, who else?! Someday when the San Andreas Fault has its BIG tantrum and the rest of the U.S. falls into the Atlantic ocean, we may all find ourselves in CA!
