Three past presidents of the California Off-Road Vehicle Association (CORVA) announced their endorsement of Colonel Paul Cook (ret.) for the 8th Congressional District. CORVA describes itself as a varied group of outdoor recreationists who promote positive aspects of vehicular access on public lands and protecting rights to that access. The group is composed of owners of street legal and "Green Sticker" vehicles such as ATV's, motorcycles, 3-wheelers, trail bikes, and dune buggies, as well as 4X4 vehicles, dual sport motorcycles, bajas, and desert racers.
Cook was recently endorsed by Kim Carpenter, a leader in the High Desert off-roading community. The CORVA past presidents endorsement letter read as follows:
California Off-Road Vehicle Association, Inc.
October 30, 2012
Mr. Paul Cook
Cook for Congress
P.O Box 365
Yucca Valley, California 92286
Re: Endorsement for Congressional District 8
The past presidents of CORVA (who combined have approximately 20 years of leadership as presidents of CORVA) have taken a long hard look at the two candidates for the above mentioned Congressional district. Upon extensive deliberation, the undersigned have decided unanimously to extend our endorsement of you for the upcoming election.
We find you to be an experienced elected official and have demonstrated your understanding and respect of the motorized off-highway vehicle issues and those who participate in the same.
We are comfortable with your keen insight on the upcoming decision regarding the proposed expansion of the 29 Palms Marine Corps base into our cherished Johnson Valley Open Area managed by the US Bureau of Land Management. We believe that you are best suited to carry our concerns to Congress and will do an admirable job protecting this entire existing Area for future generations of the public who enjoy this part of BLM public lands.
