Fishing, Farming, Forestry & Tourism
“I am a firm supporter of local input and its role in the management of our resources, as I believe the best practice for resource management is one that is closest to the people. Our rural communities exist because of the resources that founded them. Responsible use of our fundamental natural resources and the health of their industries is critical to job creation, providing needed services to our residents, attracting new industries and growing our local economies and tourism related businesses.”
