When Gianforte was asked about anti-public lands zealot William Perry Pendley serving as the head of the Bureau of Land Management, Gianforte said he was “pleased” and said he’s “optimistic about working with Mr. Pendley to promote Montana’s interests.” Gianforte also supports transferring control of federal land, and he opposes buying any new land for state parks or fishing access sites.
“Greg Gianforte sued to block Montanans’ access to public lands, and then wrote legislation to strip protections away from them. Now, he’s supporting an anti-public lands zealot to oversee millions of acres of public lands in Montana,” said MDP Deputy Communications Director Matt Fidel. “With a record like that, New Jersey millionaire Greg Gianforte simply can’t be trusted to defend public lands.”
