I think that it is important that anglers that use these facilities contact the Corps at the phone numbers and e-mails below:
Nate Herring, 918-669-7384; Nathan.firstname.lastname@example.org
Ross Adkins, 918-669-7365; Ross.email@example.com
I think this is part of the Administration's efforts to make "Sequestration" hurt the public as much as possible so they can justify revenue (tax) increases. Many of these locations are relatively unimproved and cost the Corps very little to leave open. They could likely save the same amount of money by not filling a single vacant position which would affect the public very little. At the very least the Corps needs to be held to the "temporary" nature of the closure as stated in the press release and reopen these areas in May. It is important that they hear from the public (voters)or I am afraid they will simply maintain the closures so that Sequestration causes as much pain as possible which fits in nicely with the Administration's agenda.
