Re: Petition for Open WDFW/Tribal NOF Meetings

Thanks "D". I was going to post an update on my attendance at the Commission meeting in Vancouver, but that covers it pretty well. The only thing I could add, is the importance of KEEPING THE PRESSURE ON THE STATE! WE CAN'T LET OFF. I UNDERSTAND THEIR FRUSTRATION, BUT THEY CREATED THIS MESS...AND WH...

Re: Petition for Open WDFW/Tribal NOF Meetings

Thanks guys.

I also put the request out in the Petition Update (1,132 signatures to date), so hopefully many, many others also sent in emails!

It would be great if the Commissioner's went to their emails today and got sick! [scared]

The Commission is meeting this Friday and Saturday. They have the topic of Opening these meetings on the Agenda. We NEED EVERYONE to send in an email, not "asking", "DEMANDING" they get these meetings open to the public. Doesn't have to be long. In fact just a line or two is perfect. Just as long a...

Re: Petition for Open WDFW/Tribal NOF Meetings
