Frankly, I'd far more trust the local citizens of Point Arena and Mendocino County to decide local resource management than the Sacramento-centric enviro's and special interests that are abundantly represented on this panel.
I wondered who was on this 'blue ribbon panel' - and I feel that something stinks like a day old fish in the sun. You have to ask whose interests are being served by representatives of:
- A marina management group (there isn't a marina in Point Arena area... yet)
- a marketing consultant (Golding Group... sales job)
- Western States Petroleum (WTF does this petrol group have to do with fishing? hmmm... but there is a lot of oil off Point Arena)
- a real estate development company (here come the yuppies)
- and a few 'public' types thrown in for a good mix (LA's natural history museum, Stanford).
Don't see anyone I'd expect to see like from the Sierra Club, Surfrider, Heal the Bay, etc. Here's the list, decide for yourself:
California Marine Life Protection Act Initiative
• Don Benninghoven (chair), retired as executive director, League of California Cities and City-County School Partnership
• William W. Anderson, President, Westrec Marina Management, Inc.
• Meg Caldwell, Director and Senior Lecturer on Law, Stanford Law School's Environment and Natural Resources Law & Policy Program
• Susan Golding, President and Chief Executive Officer, The Golding Group, and Former Mayor, City of San Diego
• Dr. Jane Pisano, President and Director, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
• Catherine Reheis-Boyd, Chief Operating Officer and Chief of Staff, Western States Petroleum Association
• Gregory F. Schem, President and Chief Executive Officer of Harbor Real Estate Group
