— Comment from League President and CEO Sam Hodder
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (May 22, 2014) — In just 19 months, Major General Anthony Jackson has energized and brought much-needed leadership to California State Parks (CSP). He has championed reform and helped restore trust in the California State Parks system. We are grateful for the general’s commitment to a strong future for CSP, and we look forward to keeping the momentum he initiated in our ongoing collaboration with Parks Forward Commission and the dedicated leaders of CSP. We at Save the Redwoods League wish Major General Jackson all the best in his future endeavors, and we will miss him as we move forward with our shared vision.
