It has been a privilege to represent summer motorized recreation on this committee. I also want to express my thanks to the agency staff and other members of the committee for their dedication and friendship.
Even though I will be stepping down from this appointment due to term limits, rest assured that I will continue to champion responsible OHV use on public lands in other venues and support common sense user fee programs where the agency is accountable for the monies collected. And, where those fees stay on the unit and are used for “on-the-ground” public services.
