How to remove Lorna Smith?
« on: January 28, 2022, 03:56:46 PM »
I'm listening to the cougar science WDFW commission meeting.

What can I/we do to remove Lorna Smith from the commission or move her to resign? Something in addition to asking the Senate not to confirm, and in addition to emailing the commission?

When I wrote to Senate NR committee and WDFW commission I said she votes by emotion and not science. Not sure if anyone is listening but the science is there.
I have Man Chit to do

Probably not a whole lot we can do except keep sending emails and calling Senate NR Committee members and urging a no vote or keep showing up to meetings and commenting to show hunter support and with any luck she'll exit like the last guy

I suggest she received a bunch of emails. Maybe someone could find her commission email address and post it.

Do they have an official email, or just their personal one?

Itís not like they have to answer to us.🤣

I would refrain from any unprofessional behavior no matter how much dislike folks have for lorna smith.  Bullying her will only galvanize anti's and weaken hunter voices where they inevitably lump all opposition to her/her positions as nothing more than a bunch of antagonists.

Reasoned/supported statements opposing her nomination or her positions on issues emailed to Gov staff and Senators is probably a better use of time/energy.

Yes, let's please keep it civil.  And let's point to tangible reasons.  For instance, I don't know if they keep records of such things but she basically came up with her own way of interpreting harvest statistics at the online meeting with the big 4-4 vote.  I'm drawing a blank on the exact thing she said, but it was something like interpreting the large demand for the spring bear hunt as an indication of how easy they were to kill then (rather, than, you know, an indication of how many of us are jonesing for big game hunting in the spring).  Anyway, it was something totally against what WDFW staff (or any wildlife scientist anywhere) would have said.  And conveniently in support of her position.  I personally have no problems that they added bios onto the commission - at least they're trained  to be somewhat objective.  My biggest objection are people willing to make up stuff to support a pre-decided position.

I really have to warn folks about how, where and what you say about her that could be used against hunters. If you have to talk about her or to her please be professional.

I've already seen screen shots from this site of people saying things that don't make us look good to anyone. I can't stand most of her policy choices but we don't have to be the terrible people they accuse of us of being.

Just saying....most folks have a nuetral view of us and hunting, sounding like vicious rednecks doesn't help. And I promise and can prove that the anti's are watching what we say, even on here. She's already claiming she's a victim, don't give her the satisfaction or damage the hunting image publicly
A promise made is a debt unpaid, and the trail has its own stern code

I really don't see any chance to remove her. Her backers have the ear of the Chair of the Senate Agriculture, Water, Natural Resources and Parks Commitee. This is where her confirmation hearings will go. If there is a hearing, she will have the votes. If she doesn't have the votes no hearing will take place and she will continue to serve on an interim basis until the term is up.
Short of her committing a felony, we're stuck with her.

That was baker not Smith.  Baker usually votes against hunting as well.
