Open Letter to San Francisco Supervisor Eric Mar

It must be clarified: There is no such legal entity as the “Golden Gate National Parks.” (And, unfortunately, the name has created confusion about the status of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.) Yet Ms. Meyer, the Conservancy, and even the desperate-for-funds GGNRA have applied the false “National Parks” name as a basis for altering public use—including dog walking—in the GGNRA.
— Huey Johnson

Huey Johnson is a pioneering conservationist who was key in the formation of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Point Reyes National Seashore. 

This is an open letter that Huey Johnson drafted to present to San Francisco Supervisor Eric Mar, after learning that Supervisor Mar had decided to not support San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors otherwise-unanimous resolution opposing the GGNRA’s Draft Rule for Dog Management. Supervisor Mar was the lone opposing vote, but that resolution passed regardless. The letter was then sent to the full three County Boards of Supervisors in San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin Counties.
