Letter to the Editor - Niels Hansen

Written by Niels Hansen

To the Editor,

We are once again at the time of year for the Wyoming Public Land Coalition (WPLC) to renew its membership in the National Public Lands Council (NPLC). NPLC is the only national level group dedicated solely to the preservation of grazing on federal lands, and WPLC is our dedicated group to the national group. Therefore I am urging you to support our Wyoming coalition.  

Because Wyoming is always active and engaged when issues come along, we have earned high level of respect in Washington, D.C. The fact that we continue to fight many of the same issues over and over again is a testament to the success of the NPLC. If not for the continued vigilance and work going on in D.C., many of us would have long ago gone the way of the logger. Rest assured your money has not gone to waste. Your representatives have and continue to work for the good of all of us at their own expense. Very little money has been spent to defray travel costs for your representatives. Your money goes to the fight.

When the letter asking for your support comes, please, don’t set it aside to look at later. Put in the “must pay” pile, and pay it the next time you sit down to pay bills. It is up to us to continue the fight for the good of the next generation.

Sincerely,

Niels Hansen

First Vice President, Wyoming Stock Growers Association
