Calling for Accountability

Yesterday I joined in support of U.S. Senator Scott Brown’s request to the President for the immediate removal of Jane Lubchenco, the Undersecretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere. The continued mismanagement of the groundfish fishery by federal regulators has hurt fishermen, their families and seaside businesses. In order to get the industry to a healthy state, action must be taken to begin to correct some of the past transgressions by NOAA policymakers and enforcement officials.

Below is a video taken at yesterday’s press conference called by Senator Brown, and a report by the Gloucester Daily Times.
