"All trail-access decisions are political decisions"

The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) was founded as the first national non-partisan political action committee dedicated solely to championing responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on designated roads, trails, and areas on public lands through the electoral and legislative processes.
The TPAC tactical goal is to target key races using state-of-the art real-time analysis where there is a tough election and the pro-access candidate needs some extra support to help to defeat their opponent.
TPAC is needed to counter the anti-access special interests in Washington DC who have long ago figured that contributing to closure-oriented politicians is how they will accomplish their goal of restricting OHV access on federal lands.
TPAC is ready to stand in that political breach to stop the flow of anti-access politicians into the Capital. TPAC will work hard to reverse that trend so that pro-access legislators will exist as the majority in Congress and the White House.

Pro-Trail CA State Legislator Endorses TPAC

Date: November 2, 2011


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.
