Today's guest: Fred Kelly Grant, Sylvia Milligan, and Les Baugh

Fred Kelly Grant developed the “Coordination Strategy” now being taught across the nation as a way for local governments to have meaningful input into the federal and state decision making process. This is the single greatest tool we can use to help our elected officials protect our land use from the encroachment of federal agencies. It is not a good tool, however, if they don’t know about it. Forest roads were recently closed in Southern CA because the Forest Service failed to “coordinate” and were beaten in court by environmental groups teaming up with the State of CA. This process can work for or against us. Tea party members who are interested in the many land use issue plaguing us can work wonders by getting this information into the hands of your county supervisors as a starting point..
