Last weekend at the Giants game I had the chance to have an impromtu interview with Doug Forrester. He was very gracious to take time to talk to me for around a 1/2 hour. Here is what he had to say. My first question was does he support NJ sportsmen. His response was that he supports us tremndously. While he does not hunt he does fish, but sees nothing wrong with hunting. I next asked him why he has not reached out to sportsmens groups during his campaign. He said that he has talked with alot of sportsmen throughout the state and told them where he stood on any issue they asked. He also stated that his campign people had responded to several sportsmens groups on issues. I informed him he might want to reach out to several groups before next Tues and gave him contact info for those groups. I next asked him his position on the division of F&W and outside interference. He said that in business, various fields are best managed by professionals in their respective fields. He feels the same way about F&W, the staff of biologists and managers are professionals in theirs fields and should be left alone to do what they are trained to do. I next asked him if he would sign a Sunday bowhunting bill. He said if the division supports it He would sign it. I ended the sportsmens part of my questions asking him his position on the rumor that the state wants to sell off certain WMAs and channel the money into the general fund. His response was that sportsmens money paid for those wmas and if for some reason one was sold the money would go to buy more land for new WMAs or to add to an existing one. He also interjected that he was aware that some F&W property was sold at auction and the money was not put back into the F&W fund. He assured me that would never happen if he is govenor. Being a public employee I asked him his stance on a few public employee issues. He is all for fixing the pension system and getting it back to where it should be before McGreedy failed to make payments into it for 2 years. There were other issues he touched on briefly and I liked what he had to say. I thanked him for taking time to talk to me and told him to enjoy the game. The reason I have not posted this to now is because I emailed the Corzine campaign and requested them to respond to the questions I asked Forrester. To date I have not gotten a response back.
