CALIFORNIA LEGISLATIVE CHAMPION ENDORSES THE TRAIL PAC
SAN D IEGO, CA – A nationally recognized champion for outdoor recreation on public lands endorsed The Trail PAC today. Dennis Hollingsworth, former State Senator for the 36th District in California, worked for over 10 years to protect and promote responsible recreational use of public lands. His district is home to one of the largest concentrations of off-road families in the country.
In response to increasing efforts across the state to destroy California’s outdoor heritage, Senator Hollingsworth helped found the California Legislature Outdoor Sporting Caucus, a bipartisan organization modeled after the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus in Washington, D.C. The Caucus, of which Hollingsworth served as Co-Chairman, serves to promote outdoor pursuits by presenting a strong, unified voice in Sacramento.
Dennis Hollingsworth, an avid outdoorsman himself, states, ‘Pro-access candidates running for office need the support of the off-road community. In 2012, I believe off-road voters and TPAC will have a critical role in helping get trail-friendly candidates elected into office.”
“It will be in those tight swing races where TPAC will be most useful. Being able to direct fiscal resources to those important federal campaigns will help ensure that a pro-trail majority will exist in Washington D.C. TPAC is poised to make a big impact for trail users in the 2012 election cycle.” Hollingsworth concludes.
Hollingsworth was also the recipient of a legislative award from the California League of Off-Road Voters.
