Secretary Zinke returns to Whitefish this Thursday

Shares

Ryan Zinke is coming home to Whitefish this Thursday, November 2nd for his 56th birthday party.

Welcome him home by asking him to protect public lands with MontPIRG in downtown Whitefish.

Thursday, November 2nd, 5:30-7pm – 101 Central Avenue, Whitefish: RSVP Here

Since being appointed as President Trump’s Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke has forgotten what Montana values look like.

From trying to open up our national monuments to oil and gas exploration to doubling the price of admission to our national parks, Ryan has proved that he is no friend of public lands.

From Don Pogreba in this post:

Ryan Zinke has always struggled to define his position on our public lands. The Secretary of the Interior has always painted himself as a Teddy Roosevelt Republican, committed to the protection of public spaces and preservation of the special, untouched places that make the West what it is, but his policy record shows a person far too often more interested in protecting the interests of multinational corporations and private landowners than the public interest. As Secretary of the Interior, that tension between the persona Zinke has created and the politician he has become even more apparent.

Join the MontPIRG team and concerned Flathead residents to greet Secretary Zinke to remind them that public lands are a cornerstone of our nation and they belong to all of us. Bring your homemade “Keep Public Lands in Public Hands” signs to let Secretary Zinke know that we won’t stand for his attacks on these special outdoor places.

Public Lands in Public Hands Whitefish Rally: RSVP HERE
