Anybody see this email from BRC? Maybe it needs to be brought up in the next meeting?

Of course it's probably too late now, the press release was 10/13, BRC didn't get it until 10/19, which is when they sent it out, and that was two weeks ago...I love how politics works :rolleyes:


Colorado State Parks Seeks Applications for State Trails Committee

Dear BRC members, supporters and action alert subscribers,

Jerry Abboud, one of the Main Brains with the Colorado Off-Highway Vehicle Coalition (COHVCO), just sent news that the Colorado State Parks is officially taking applications for the District 2 seat on the Colorado State Trails Committee.

Jerry writes in his email: "Not sure why we received the release a week late..."

Given that the greenies are trying to take over the Colorado Parks Board and make it anti-motorized, I can suggest a reason...

If you are in District 2, please consider applying. Please feel free to contact Jerry Abboud or Glen Graham for more info. Check COHVCO's website for contact info for Jerry and Glen.

Please pass this on to your friends, family and anyone who you think might be able to help.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
Thanks in advance for your support,

Brian Hawthorne
Public Lands Policy Director
BlueRibbon Coalition

If you are in District 2 and are interested please consider applying. I believe this is a diversified slot, meaning you engage in motorized and non-motorized. Not sure why we received the release a week late, but there is still time.

The role of the State Trails Committee is to:

* Advise Colorado State Parks' State Trails Program on strategic and policy issues.
* Review trail grant procedures and funding programs.
