Re: E-M:/ SHAME -MNRTF Board of Trustees Sets Special Meeting for November 9

Jack, I'm also appalled at the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Board members who voted to allow a private golf course to displace sand dunes on Lake Michigan in Benton Harbor's Jean Klock Park.  This points out the serious threat to public parks, both at the State and municipal levels.

Could you list the MNRTF Board members who voted for this shameful proposal, which Governor appointed them, and the address at which they can be reached by email or mail?

DNR officials and the Trustees of the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund should be ashamed of themselves fo[snip]r violating the public trust and allowing the destruction of Jean Klock Park in Benton Harbor.  The lack of backbone exhibited by DNR officials and Trust Fund Trustees is truly appalling.  Had Tom Washington been alive, I highly doubt that he would have succumbed to the short-sighted political deal which was behind this "conversion".
