FMR. INTERIOR OFFICIAL ENDORSES THE TRAIL PAC
SACRAMENTO, CA – The former Assistant Secretary for Fish, Wildlife, and Parks in the U.S. Department of the Interior endorsed The Trail PAC today. The Honorable Craig Manson also served as a Superior Court judge in Sacramento and was General Counsel to the California Department of Fish and Game.
Currently, Craig Manson is General Counsel of the largest agricultural water agency in the United States, and has had a distinguished career in the Air Force and California Air National Guard. As a law professor for eighteen years, he taught natural resources law, administrative law and public policy development.
Craig Manson, “As one who has served as a land management executive policymaker at the highest levels of federal and state governments, I can’t stress enough the importance of recreation interests to get involved in the political process.”
“Federal resource departments must carry out the land-use directives from the White House while answering to Congress that creates laws, has budget authority, and oversight responsibilities. It is critically important for recreational interests to support those politicians who champion a responsible land-ethic that includes managed OHV use on public lands,” Manson concludes.
