Delta County Commissioners Don Suppes, Mark Roeber and Mike Lane sent letters of support for the nomination of David Bernhardt as Secretary of the Interior to President Donald J. Trump and Senator Michael Bennet on March 26.
The commissioners noted that Bernhardt grew up near Delta County and knows how the multiple use mandate of the BLM is applied practically across the landscape. He has broad and extensive experience in both the public and private sectors and understands the complexities of the laws and regulations from all sides. Bernhardt has significant knowledge of the full scope and complexity of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife regulations. They believe this broad-based and in-depth knowledge makes David Bernhardt the right person at this right time to lead the Department of Interior.
