Brady Robinson Of Access Fund Endorses Sally Jewell As Next Interior Secretary In Op-ed For The Hill

WASHINGTON, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is released by Qorvis Communications, LLC:

Brady Robinson, executive director of the Access Fund, announced his support for Sally Jewell as the next Interior secretary.

Robinson's op-ed in The Hill stated that Jewell brings extensive experience as CEO of Recreation Equipment Incorporation (REI), and that the U.S. needs an Interior Secretary that prioritizes the protection and enhancement of the recreation assets while also presiding over the record level of energy projects.

"Economies across the country that rely on public lands recreation are not only increasing in volume and number, but have outperformed most other communities that lack this sector," Robinson wrote.

Under Jewell's leadership, REI grew to 127 stores in 31 states with sales exceeding $1.8 billion annually. Robinson says that her experience in the oil and gas industry, as well as her time at REI, means she understands "the balance that must be struck on public lands."

"If confirmed as Interior secretary, Jewell would be one of the few to actually share the passions of the majority of people who use the 500 million acres of public land under that department's control. We believe she is up to the task."

Robinson is the Executive Director of the Access Fund. The Fund is a national advocacy organization that keeps U.S. Climbing areas open and conserves the climbing environment. Founded in 1991, the Access Fund supports and represents over 2.3 million climbers nationwide in all forms of climbing: rock, ice, mountaineering, and bouldering.
