ODFW Interim Director

Tom Wolf has been monitoring with TU's interest - and adding input & suggestions - the director appointment at ODFW and through Governor Kitzhaber. Many have heard that Director Roy Elicker is resigning effective October 10 to take a position with the USFWS Pacific Region. It was just announced that Curt Melcher will fill the Director position starting October 1 until a new permanent Director is named.

Tom notes he has a good and long-term working relationship with Mr. Melcher and looks forward to continuing to work with him and the remainder of the ODFW board going into the 2015 session - especially with budget concerns and the Directorship at hand!

If anyone cares to share their thoughts - contact Tom through the OCTU website.
