Madrone’s service reflects dedication to natural resources

Steve Madrone’s enthusiasm, expertise and dedication to our natural resources are noteworthy. After receiving a Master’s Degree in Watershed Management from HSU, Steve continued his learning by consulting and working with the Mattole Salmon Group (Executive Director), the Trinidad Bay Watershed Council, the California Urban Creeks Council, and the National Network of Forest Practitioners. At Redwood Community Action Agency, where Steve was the Natural Resources Director, he was instrumental in moving forward the Hammond Trail from concept to reality.

In his years of working at these various agencies and organizations, Steve has brought about $20 million dollars into our economy.

While pursuing his passions, Steve earned recognition and awards from the Salmonid Restoration Federation, the Alliance for Sustainable Jobs and the Environment, and the Humboldt Chapter of the American Fisheries Society. Currently, Steve is a lecturer in Forestry and Watershed Management at HSU.

Madrone also served as Councilman and Mayor Pro-Tem and on the Planning Commission in Blue Lake.

Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of Madrone’s activities is his consistent and diligent attention to political decision making. His knowledge of the County’s General Plan, the Coastal Commission decisions, the Harbor Commission’s deliberations and McKinleyville’s activities is extraordinary.

If you are interested in a representative that treasures our land and water, will argue for a diversified economy with small to moderate sized agricultural and business interests, alternative energies and sustainable developments, I encourage you to vote for Steve Madrone; vote for a change.
