    Seggos clearly does not care about the Adirondacks or High Peaks Region. His misleading statements that conflate statewide and regional staffing continue. How long do we let him get away with this fallacy?

    Tell the headline writers at the T-U that DEC hasn’t been called EnCon for about 40 years now (sigh).

    This is a bummer – the high peaks region definitely needs more forest rangers. I get confused over Seggos when I read about his leadership. He seems good on some stuff, but not good in other key areas.

    • Boreas says

      A commissioner who feels more people in the backcountry coupled with more backcountry to patrol and who still feels this doesn’t require more staffing is not much of an advocate for safety or backcountry protection. Let the governor know your thoughts – he’s not listening to me!

    I think the rangers should not have every other weekend off. Seems silly to do that when the weekends are the busiest days of the week for hiking.
