POSITIONS

PROTECT OUR COAST / OUR FISHERIES

We are the stewards of a pristine coastline and landscape of incalculable beauty and wealth. Protecting the coast is the responsibility of us all, but the two coastal supervisors must take the lead. 

  • We must stop all federal oil and gas lease sales.
  • We oppose attempts by the U.S. Navy to use our coast for weapons testing.
  • We oppose plans to develop unproved wave energy.

We must protect our local crab, urchin and seaweed businesses and all intact fisheries from over-regulation.

We will work with Humboldt and Del Norte Counties to stop privatization efforts such as the Marine Life Protection Act Initiative  (MLPAI).  – a private-foundation takeover of marine life, which threatens local coastal businesses that harvest the ocean for food.
