Navajo-Hopi Observer


PHOENIX, Ariz. - Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced last week new appointments or re-appointments of five new members to Arizona's 15 citizen-based Resource Advisory Council (RAC), which advises the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) on public land issues. The RAC is composed of members with diverse interests and backgrounds.

The RACs, composed of citizens chosen for their expertise in natural resource issues, help the BLM carry out its stewardship of 245 million acres - the largest land portfolio of any federal agency. The BLM has established 29 RACs across the west, where most BLM-managed land is located. Each RAC consists of 10 to 15 members with an interest in public land management, such as conservationists, outdoor recreationists, ranchers, tribal officials, state and local government officials, academics, and others.

"RAC members represent a variety of professional backgrounds and perspectives, and together bring a balanced outlook that the BLM needs in managing the public lands for multiple uses," said BLM Acting Director Mike Pool.

The BLM, an agency of the Interior Department, is responsible for managing various uses - such as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production - while conserving the land's natural, historical, and cultural resources.

Newly appointed or newly re-appointed members of the Arizona RAC include Larry Howery, local area/academia, Tucson; Carl Taylor, non-commodity/historical/archaeology, Flagstaff; Thomas Hulen, commercial recreation, Tempe; Maggie Sacherk, commercial recreation, Marble Canyon; and Jeffrey Sargent, local area/public-at-large, Peoria.
