Don Amador:

...For example in CA yesterday, Assemblyman Jared Huffman (D-Petaluma) voted in a budget committee to gut the CA OHV Grants program that supports FS, BLM, and county OHV parks such as Metcalf Cycle Park near San Jose. However, he is termed out of his state office and is now running for the House of Representatives in a congressional district that has number of federal OHV areas. The very same areas he voted to defund while a state representative.

State Senator Joe Simitian (D- Palo Alto) who championed the plan to defund the CA OHV program is also termed out of his state office and is now running for county supervisor near one of the county parks he voted to defund.

TPAC is once again strongly urging trail voters to cast ballots for those in all offices who will support our sport and access to public lands...

I was really under the impression that Jared Huffman was against the plan.

I am sending him, Jared Huffman, an email explaining why he has lost my vote. If anyone can fine tune this thing or let me know if I got my facts wrong, I would appreciate the help.

Dear Assemblyman Jared Huffman,

I am writing to explain how and why you have forever lost my vote.

Yesterday you voted in favor of gutting the OHV trust as part of a borrow from Peter to pay Paul effort to fund the poorly run and administrated State Park system.

I'm certain you are aware that these funds are generated through the additional taxation of motorcycles.

By misappropriating, yes I said misappropriating as this plan would land any business owner in jail were he/she to fall victim to an audit, you have voted to defunct a system that is both profitable and self supporting.

I know that you are now running for the House of Representatives in a congressional district that has number of federal OHV areas. These are the very same areas you voted to defund as a state representative. Because of this, how can I, as a constituent possibly trust that you will represent me, my interests, and most of all my HARD EARNED money, without succumbing to some shiny "fix all" package of excrement.

I met with Zoe Lofgren's chief of staff yesterday, Sandra Soto.

She said Zoe was on our side, but we should work with Farr's and Costa's offices. I asked her to tell me who is responsible to keep the BLM in check.

She will get back to me. I feel like I was given the brsuh off. Zoe is running for re election.

From Andy on SBR:

It's extremely important that we vote for Kris Wang for the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors. If you are a resident of District 5 which includes:

Cupertino, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Monte Sereno, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Saratoga, Stanford, Sunnyvale, the West San Jose neighborhoods, and unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County, you should see this on your Official Ballot:

Attachment: 403652

The last person we want to see elected is Joe Simitian because he's anti-OHV. Currently he's trying to raid the OHV trust fund so that unused State Parks that nobody goes to can stay open. As OHV people we need to send a clear message to Joe Simitian that the OHV community will not tolerate government officials that ignore laws and try to steal OHV trust funds assuming we're not paying attention.

Simitian is a Santa Clara Supervisor now, or will be, as he won that election.

I just want to point out:
In regards to stealling our OHV funds:
"We can back fill with cap and trade".

He said that to us. For real. Asshole.

I need you guys to share your experiences with our legislators. I would like to see us collectively support the good guys.

Your site.
