State Parks Welcomes New Leader

Recommended Posts

Cuomo appoints new state parks commissioner: "This administration is laser focused on the advancement and enforcement of policies that improve the lives of residents in every corner of this state, from strengthening gun safety reforms and protecting our natural resources, to fostering economic opportunities that create new, 21st century jobs for New Yorkers," Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said

Mr. Kulleseid graduated from Yale College, has a law degree from Stanford Law School and later obtained a forestry master's degree from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. He practiced law at a Wall Street firm in the early 1990s. He grew up in the Hudson Valley next to Hudson Highlands State Park Preserve, and now lives in downtown Albany with his husband and two daughters. His first formal job was as a lifeguard at Harriman State Park's Lake Welch in 1982.

Andrew M. Cuomo said

As always, Governor Cuomo never misses an opportunity to rant on his nonsense “gun safety reforms” that do not work, but certainly pacifies his gun control supporters.  Cuomo talks nonsense while never addressing the real problems that need to be fixed in New York State.  

Will Cuomo ever understand that “gun safety” applies at the shooting range and hunting, and has nothing to do with reducing or eliminating gun violence?   Apparently Cuomo continues to use the term “gun safety” because he is unable or unwilling to understand the root causes of gun violence.

OK-- Do you know if the Anti-Hunting Polices of the Palisades Interstate Park Commission will still prevail with this new Leader?? A few examples of State Parks that cannot be hunted just in my area-- Orange County. Harriman State Park-- over 44,000 Acres, Goosepond Mt State Park. A few thousand Acres 4 miles down the road from where, I live. Highland Lakes State Park up near Wallkill.  I have Hiked these areas. Plenty of Deer-- but too many and Small Deer.  Nothing will change, I don't think. I guess if, I lived on the edge of these Parks, I would slip out the back door too with a Bow.

Sounds like another political patronage payoff position.

Anyone here think his "policies that improve the lives of residents in every corner of this state" have enhanced the quality of their life in this state?

Anyone see any uptick in the employment sector from "fostering economic opportunities that create new, 21st century jobs"?  (Aside from work in an abortion clinic)

His "gun safety" rhetoric is just verbiage from the leftist playbook that translates into "gun control".  Leftists have learned to use more banal speech to avoid transparency,  in order to avoid blow back and objection to their oppressive goals.  For example, the term "gun violence" is used to direct attention away from "gang violence" and make it seem as if the guns are the problem, not the gang members.  It's all about controlling what leftists have an interest in controlling.

This new parks commissioner isn't about to make the state parks more useful to citizens.  He's there to control their use.

They will probably continue with their anti hunting policies and hire the USDA to come in to eliminate the herd, with bait, rifles and night vision scopes. Just like they have doing at the state parks down here for quite some time.

About 6 Months or so before Sterling Forest  became State Land in 1999- a Small group of Hunters,myself included heard through word of mouth that the DEC would not act as Manager for this New State Land and instead - The Palisades Interstate Park Commission would incorporate this new State Land into their huge system of State Parks which do not allow Hunting!!   I started to write Letters everywhere. I still have a signed reply letter from Gov Pataki saying he would discuss this matter about letting all Hunting Stand in the newly acquired Sterling Forest with the Top guy of the PIPC based in BEAR MT. STATE PARK. I wrote to Congressman Ben Gilman several times and he assured me he would also contact the PIPC at Bear Mt. About allowing hunting to continue in the newly acquired Sterling Forest. Our little group did much and this was way before the Orange County Federation Of Sportsman's Clubs finally got on board. In the end-- all the Letters worked. The existing Rifle Range however was no more.. I have a few pics of the Rifle Range in the Forum- Region 3 under - Pics Of Sterling Forest From Before 1999.  On a similar topic, I have been writing letters off and on for over 10 years about 500 Acres of State Land that is Legal to hunt in Monroe . However it is Landlocked. The Appalachian Trail runs to the North of the Monroe State Land and 1,500 Acres of Tuxedo Landbecame off Limits to Hunters when the DORIS DUKE FOUNDATION gave millions of dollars to preserve State Land- but wanted this Tuxedo Section to be off limits to hunters. That left the Monroe State Land Totally Landlocked as the rules State the Appalachian Corridor cannot be crossed by Hunters. For just 1 year-- we were able to cross. Anyway, I know our Small group saved the Hunting Tradition in the now Sterling Forest State Park even if no one knows about it.
