If I recall correctly, Daphne is/was a Democrat. She was appointed to the commission by Gov. Davis, a democrat. Schwarzenegger had enough good sense to appoint her to the Deputy Directors position.

Ride on

LATEST CORVA NEWS

December 13, 2011

Trouble in Sacramento!

Governor Brown has terminated the appointment of Daphne Greene, who has served as Deputy Director of the OHV Division of State Parks effective January 1, 2012. Governor Jerry Brown's appointee has not yet been announced, but the decision could have long lasting negative effects for off road access, including the loss for family recreation throughout California at all the State Vehicle Recreation Areas (SVRA) located statewide. The State's OHMVR trust fund has been in peril since the state siphoned $10 million received from the gas tax from its budget before it could reach the trust earlier this year, and plans for a continued removal of those funds will continue indefinitely.

The State has a long history of borrowing millions from the OHMVR trust every year, monies that are needed for acquisitions and improvements. The California OHMVR program's annual budget of $85 million comes from primarily gas tax revenues with only about 20% coming from the Green/Red Sticker Program. With the loss of Daphne Greene - a longtime strong OHV ally - all the OHV programs - both the SVRA programs and the Grant Programs - stand to be eliminated. Jerry Brown has not been a supporter of any OHV programs and seeks to aide his ailing budget by closing the entire OHV program.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

1. Call, write or email your STATE Senator and Legislator immediately. Tell them how important the California Off Highway Vehicle programs are to you and your family. Mention the State facilities and areas that you use and how important they are to your family, or business if that applies.

2. Write, call or email Governor Jerry Brown with the same information. Express how Daphne Greene was a champion for the off road access community. (We will NOT change the fact that she has lost her job, but he may consider replacing her with someone who will look favorably on the OHV programs.)

3. Be prepared for CORVA to lead a legal challenge in case we have to force the State to abide by the law, and keep the OHV programs going.

You can always make a donation to help keep us on the ground and running.

"In a guest op-ed in The Bee in June, Karen Schambach, California director of Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, accused Greene of hoarding money within her division while other park programs suffered from state budget cuts."

Wow, that Karen person is something else.

My guess is that this firing has nothing to do with Daphne's abilities (she was freakin' awesome imo).

Somewhere there is an anti-OHV person pushing to get rid of Daphne because she did too good of a job, get someone weak in there and the program becomes weaker.

If you think things are bad now, It would be 50x worse having Shumback running

the show, I personally dont think she would get appointed no matter what the liberal press says

But in this volatile political climate, anything is possible

I have sent my emails. I honestly think that the more opposition they get the more inclined they will be to replace her. They don't give a rats *expletive what we think. We obviously would never vote for any of them nor do we have lobbysists that will pay them.......
