Vote the bums out
Dear Trail Voter,

As CA, MT, NJ, NM, and SD hold their Primaries next week on June 5, TPAC wants to remind folks to not only vote/support your pro-access congressional candidates but vote for your local and state candidates as well. Often times these folks move from one elected body to another leaving a voting record you can review.

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. Become an army of one and network with your fellow riders regarding this election.

As you can see in CA, it DOES matter who you vote for.

To help TPAC at the federal level, please donate today at:

Now - GO VOTE and forward this email on to your riding network.

Thanks,

Don
