Here's something I got e-mailed to me, sorry for the late timing;
Two weeks ago you demanded justice for the virtual conspiracy that placed Denby Lloyd as ADF&G Commissioner.
As you remember, with supporting ethical shenanigans by the Joint Boards of Fish and Game, the Governor was handed a "list" that consisted of one name, Denby Lloyd.
The Senate Resources Committee heard you loud and clear and postponed Mr. Lloyd's confirmation vote until they could "ask him a few questions".
That day of questioning is Monday, March 12 at 3:30 pm!
Once again, those who are outraged must rise up and be heard!!!
If possible, please consider showing up at your local Legislative Information Office to give telephone testimony to the Resources Committee as they meet in Juneau.
A good showing of hundreds of sportsmen will make sure that our legislators know exactly how we feel!! Remember, the more the merrier!!!
Don't Forget, Lloyd has selected a “bio-greenie”, Ken Taylor, as his Deputy of Game. You heard it right, the same Ken Taylor that brought us Knowles’ wolf neutering fiasco, and helped reintroduce wolves into Yellowstone (see below for his full list of “accomplishments”).
We cannot wait! Our moose populations are crashing around us, and Federal intrusion is at an all time high! This may be the last chance we have for the next generation to enjoy the life style that Alaskan's live for – an Alaska where wildlife abundance is the rule, not the exception.
If you can't reach a Legislative Information Office, call your Senators and ask them to vote NO on Lloyd's confirmation. If they do, the Governor can begin an honest process and request the Joint Boards to rethink their "list" definition. We Alaskans who elected Sarah Palin Governor deserve no less.
Now is the time to call and/or email your Senators today and let the will of the people be heard!

As the Governor often says "Take a stand!”
Denby’s Game Guy – “Taylor-made” for a Wildlife Disaster
• Mr. Taylor’s ultimate claim to fame was his intense personal satisfaction with his important role in moving Canadian wolves into Yellowstone National Park.
• At a conference in Homer with Deborah Williams’ group (now known as the Alaska Conservation Voters), Mr. Taylor recounted his efforts to aid the restoration of wolves to Yellowstone National Park including the line, "I cried when the wolves were released at Yellowstone". Very progressive, Ken! Now every hunter in the whole country is crying over this unmitigated disaster.
• Mr. Taylor, an active liberal, was an enthusiastic supporter and campaigner for Democrat Fran Ulmer's unsuccessful run for governor.
• In Fairbanks, from about '85 to '91 (or so) he had dismal performance. His penchant for playing golf and chasing "the good life" sent him on the National and International meetings circuit to the point that the Fairbanks staff referred to him as "The Vacancy Factor".
• Mr. Taylor's tenure at Region III in Fairbanks followed a stint as one of the worst area biologist's in corporate memory. He was assigned in Dillingham (Mulchatna Caribou herd, etc.) where he distinguished himself by never having any data for the Board (or probably the Region) on population dynamics or changes. He virtually sat in the chair and accomplished nothing.
• As the management coordinator in cahoots with Chris Smith (ultra greenie and "anti" sympathizer), he made sure Bob Stevenson, one of arguably the best five wolf biologists in the world was taken out as the Department's wolf expert and re-assigned as an area biologist. The new wolf guy was a much better "yes" man.
• Taylor was "responsible" for decisions during the Department's GMU 20A wolf control efforts and could have easily avoided the confrontation with Gordon Haber, which put Gordie on the evening news after the Dept. muffed efficiently killing a wolf in a snare with the cameras rolling.
• In the 1990s, Taylor worked for some time as the Deputy Director of the Division of Wildlife Conservation under his CSU college buddy and longtime friend Wayne Reglin. Among his notable achievements, he can be credited (at least in part) with the Department’s disastrous wolf sterilization program.
• He was later appointed Director of Habitat under Tony Knowles and was at the helm during the time they really got into trouble. There were eyewitness accounts of Habitat staffers throwing pizza parties to celebrate their victories in shutting down commercial/industrial endeavors. Murkowski subsequently moved Habitat to DNR to neutralize the Division’s radical environmental gang’s ability to stifle industry/development.
• Throughout his career, Taylor was uniformly known as a lackluster supervisor by those he supervised, except for the habitat folks whom he let do anything the regional Habitat Supervisor wanted to do.
