DEP Transition Team Report Available

__________________________________________________ _______________________

I'd like to thank each of you for your involvement in the 2009 gubernatorial election. I'm confident that the prominent role the outdoor community played in helping to elect Governor Christie resulted in our concerns becoming highly visible, which led to our involvement in the Department of Environmental Protection Transition Team (as represented by the New Jersey Outdoor Alliance.)

This representation was helpful in bringing attention to a DEP that often overlooks or undervalues the conservation aspects of our natural resources. The final report from the DEP Transition Team can be found at the link that follows. See page 17, Note #5, "Natural Resource Stewardship" for the suggestions regarding natural resources.

Thank you, again, for your involvement in the political process and for contacting legislators and "getting out the vote." Our political involvement is bringing attention to the importance of natural resource conservation, fishing, hunting and outdoor recreation.

Congratulations.


Anthony P. Mauro, Sr
