Secretary Zinke Utah Trip

Secretary Zinke Utah Trip


We as a country have to work together. It is all of our land. (music) Great to be in Utah. It’s amazing the vistas and what I saw today
and there’s cultural parts and it’s just drop-dead gorgeous. We must value it. You do. And so do I. (music) I met with the tribes yesterday. I had a very productive meeting with five,
met with the commissioners today. We want to make sure that everyone’s voice
is heard. (music) (natural sounds of conversation) Over a period of time the monuments I think
we can all agree have been a wonderful addition of protecting some of our biggest treasures. And as the Secretary I find myself a steward
of what I think of as our greatest holdings…we have a fifth of the land in the U.S. (music and natural sound) Everyone recognizes there are cultural areas
that need to be protected. Everyone understands that multiple use, traditional
use, of grazing, of recreation, of hunting, of fishing, is enormously important. Everyone understands, and they’re concerned
on both sides, about the people. Yesterday I did a couple of hikes, and I’m
concerned. From a kid who grew up in Montana, no one
loves public lands more than I do. And the trip today verified that it is drop-dead
gorgeous country.

  1. Notice in the background are always the same Anti-Monument delegation leading him around and making sure he saw one side of the issue? The Chamber of Commerce for the local towns wanted to talk to him to tell him how local businesses are really doing but he refused to meet with them.

    It says volumes when you claim to be concered about how locals are doing but refuse to meet with the actual business owners that live there.
