Dear Trail Voter,
The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) works to elect federal candidates who will support legislation and policy that promotes and protects responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on public and private lands. TPAC is proud to announce its official endorsement and support for Doug Ose who is running in California's 7th Congressional District (CD7).
Ed Santin, an AMA District 36 Board Member and CD7 constituent, states, "Former Congressman Doug Ose was a strong supporter of trail access issues when he was in the House of Representatives. I believe we need his leadership once again considering the hostile regulatory climate that directly affects our ability to ride responsibly on Forest Service and BLM trails. I will be urging my friends to vote for Ose on November 4."
Steve Egbert, President of California Association of Four Wheel Drive Clubs, states, "I believe that Doug Ose is the right choice in this election. Trail users are continually faced with onerous unwarranted regulations that impact our ability to enjoy the great outdoors with our family and friends. We need to send Ose back to Washington D.C. to help bring some common sense to the land-use debate."
As a former congressman, Doug Ose has a proven track record when it comes to supporting legislation that protects responsible OHV recreational access to federal lands. He will also fight against the anti-access regulatory agenda of the green lobby in Washington D.C. and champion common sense regulatory reform at the EPA and other agencies.
His opponent, Ami Bera, was recently endorsed by that very same green lobby. Last month, the California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV) and the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund announced their endorsement of Ami Bera for re-election to CD7.
Ose is in a very tight race with incumbent congressman Ami Bera. Early in the midterms, TPAC identified CD7 as one of our key House battleground races. Now with CD7 in the national spotlight and because the green lobby is rushing its support to Bera, it is time for trail voters to step up to the plate and help elect Doug Ose to the House of Representatives.
Remember that with each donation of $25 dollars or more, you get one of our new "I VOTE TRAILS" bumper stickers that you can proudly display on your vehicle of choice.
Thanks for being engaged in the 2014 midterms!
