site maintenance or deleted?

It was working earlier this week.

Please don't tell me it was wiped out quicker that a strike netter can clean trout out of a creek in the dark of night.

Maybe the Governor is revamping his site for 2020.  

We'll see what promises he makes this time.

It sure got him elected last time when about 5,000 dummies switched horses.  I was responsible for at least five of those votes...not happening this time.  

...and I get reminded of it frequently.

...but you're 1,000% right. 

Fool me once...

Still down, the Gov doesn't appear to need the recreational angler vote in 2020.

I guess the big dealers have the Gov's back-







There's a lot of truth in those last two paragraphs.



I'll remind everyone what the Gov said in 2016-


From the office of Roy Cooper

MARINE FISHERIES POLICY PAPER

The Outdoors have been a vital part of Roy Cooper’s life as far back as he can remember. Having grown up in rural Nash County, he still holds the values he learned working and playing outside during his youth. He remembers the lessons he learned working in the fields harvesting crops as much as he appreciates time spent with friends exploring the woods and watching fishermen on the famous piers that dotted the coast. As someone whose father instilled in him a deep appreciation for the lands and waters of North Carolina, and the wildlife that lives in them, Roy Cooper understands the significance of these natural resources and the necessity for their responsible management.

A Cooper Administration will work to ensure that those vital outdoor experiences from earlier times remain available to our state’s future generations, including hunting and fishing. The sustainability and protection of North Carolina’s natural resources must be a priority. North Carolina’s lands and waters must be responsibly used and managed so that all the state’s citizens will benefit.

Unfortunately, today our once abundant marine fisheries resources are no longer. The fish, shrimp, oysters, and crabs in our sounds and estuaries that once defined our state are now declining or depleted. Between loss of habitat and overfishing of our fish stocks, North Carolina’s marine resources have dwindled. Our oyster population may have declined to 10% of its historic levels. North Carolina’s flounder, and weakfish populations are depleted; spot and croaker are under significant stress.

Our marine fisheries resources are under threat from pollution straining the ecosystems those fish need to survive, and fishing in nursery areas and oyster reefs that limit our stock’s ability to grow. Overfishing in our nursery areas could threaten prized catches like red drum, speckled trout. That status quo cannot continue without doing significant, and probably irreparable, damage to our marine economies.

As Governor, Roy Cooper will put in place agency managers and Marine Fisheries Commission members who will make decisions in accordance with the best scientific evidence available and conservative principles to enhance the resource. The Fisheries Reform Act of 1997 will be 20 years old next year, and it needs to be modernized and updated to respond to the realities of our state’s resources and economic well being. If the current course, as set by Governor McCrory, is maintained; the availability of our natural resources for the use and enjoyment of future generations is in serious jeopardy.

North Carolina needs both a thriving recreational and commercial fishing industry. Neither is thriving right now. According to a recent Division of Marine Fisheries economic study, the value of the resource is estimated to generate over $2 billion a year. The recreational industry has a total economic impact of $1.6 billion, and the commercial industry had an impact of at least $255 million. We can have a “win-win outcome” however, if we protect the resource and ensure its sustainability into the future. With increased viable and healthy stocks in state’s waters, this revenue would only stand to grow and provide opportunity to North Carolina’s families and businesses. North Carolina should be able to have leadership in place where families, businesses, restaurants, grocery stores, hotels, and tackle shops, are able to benefit from a healthy resource.

We continue to read about failures by the McCrory administration to protect North Carolina’s citizens from damage done to our natural resources, and our communities appear to be unable to rely on the current Governor to ensure we have safe drinking water. Governor McCrory has clearly shown that the protection of our environment and the natural resources of our State is not a priority. He has made clear, through his actions and appointments, that our valuable natural resources need not be protected for everyone’s benefit or for the use of our future generations. His actions and appointments have been a betrayal to North Carolinians who have always cared deeply about their clean water and air, fertile lands and forest.

As Governor, Cooper will change the direction of our natural resources policies to make the sustainability of our precious land, water, and air, and the ecosystems within them, a top priority.

An “in your face” example of politicians self interest over the interest of the natural resources of our State.
It’s not about “best available science” but rather biggest payday. Sad to see our coastal resources were bought so cheap!

Roy Cooper, your legacy will be that of a Governor for Sale. Well done sir!

Commissioner Boltes' picture has been removed from the MFC webpage; I'm guessing he has resigned. 

Will Gov. Cooper continue his anti-resource appointments?
