Support Mark Lovelace's Appointment to the Coastal Commission

      Trinidad, CA

Governor Jerry Brown will soon appoint the North Coast region representative to the Coastal Commission.  Tell the Governor to appoint Supervisor Mark Lovelace.

The Coastal Commission is our most powerful ally for protecting our precious  coast.  But it only protects the coast when the commissioners want to protect it. As a long time advocate on important local land use, development and environmental issues, as Humboldt County's representative on PG&E's Wave Connect wave energy project and implementation of Klamath Dams removal project and as an appointee on many other important coastal working groups, Mark is uniquely qualified to protect our coast.

Sign this petition to tell the Governor to appoint Mark Lovelace to the Coastal Commission.

      Mark would be an excellent choice for this position, well educated about the issues and well endowed with critical thinking skill.

      Mark has dedicated years of work towards the integrity and future of the Humboldt bioregion. Please appoint him as our representative for the North Coast region to the Coastal Commission. His experience and care towards the broader community and our resilience over time is far more important than the more narrow agendas of short-term profit as represented through other commissioner nominees. Commercial development and deferred industrial clean-up from previous economic activities directly threatens our local economy, as well as the greater systemic health throughout California.

      Thank you for your consideration of appointing Mark Lovelace to the Coastal Commission.

      Sincerely, Dian Bacigalupi

      Mark Lovelace has a balanced and fair approach that would blend well with the Coastal Commission and its objectives.

      I've worked with Mark on many local projects and know that he'd do a great job for Humboldt County if he's nominated for the Coastal Commission.

      I am a 47-year resident of Mckinleyville, living adjacent to Hammond Trail. I have seen the development of coastal use and conservation as a living entity out of my front window for decades. I believe Mark Lovelace has a record of accomplishment on issues involving the environment which will be of value as the work of the Coastal Commission moves into the second decade of this century. It's a very long coastline; the commission needs his energy and wisdom.
