I am a conservation voter because my working career was dedicated to protecting and enhancing our natural resources so the public can have a healthy environment and safely use and enjoy our natural resources. It is important to pass these resources on to future generations better than we found them. In today's political world of power politics and special interests, it is critical to have a voice that informs voters to shape informed natural resource decision-making.
