Letter: Support for Schwartz

It is time to step up and vote for Gail Schwartz, who understands the importance of keeping our public lands in public hands. She has been quoted as saying, “These lands are our economy, our future and our heritage,” and I agree.

The threat to our public lands is especially poignant after the recent acquittal of the Bundy Brothers and fellow conspirators who attempted the takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, a federally owned wildlife sanctuary in Oregon. The militant action taken to occupy the wildlife refuge was an action taken against all Americans who value the importance of preserving public lands.

Now we have an opportunity to show that we care through our vote. Gail Schwartz understands the importance of protecting our public lands and that is one of the many reasons that I am voting for Gail Schwartz for Congress in the 3rd Congressional District.
