There's was a good article in the Post Standard about Grannis and why hunters oppose his nomination.

He's got a great history on environmental issues, but is apparently against hunting and trapping.

Here's a snip from the article:

"The statement made no mention at all, though, of the nominee's sponsorship or advocacy of bills that would have prohibited the use of so-called leg hold traps and allowed counties to usurp the DEC's authority to regulate fur trapping. Nor did it cite Grannis' support for legislation that, according to critics, characterized hunting as a form of animal cruelty.

Finally, the governor's press release overlooked the award conferred on the assemblyman by the notoriously anti-hunting, anti-trapping Humane Society of the United States. "

I think it's inappropriate to put someone in charge of the agency that oversees hunting and trapping who's against it.

Oh yeah, he's also anti cell tower in the 'dacks, that's why I didn't sign the petition.
