Political Payback?

That's right! Arnold fires his brother-in-law and Dirty Harry, for opposing the toll road. You have to wonder who is paying off Arnold. Is Arnold trying to kill our state parks??? He proposes closing 48 parks, shoving a rich-man's toll road through San Onofre, ruining Anzo Borrego with the Sun Link powerlines, and now firing Shriver and Eastwood from the Parks Commission. Arnold is wrong on so many issues that matter to Californians, you have to wonder just who he actually represents...


Governor wants Clint Eastwood, Shriver's brother replaced with 'fresh legs'
By Terry Rodgers

UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER

Take your pick.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger either felt the need for “fresh legs” on the state Park & Recreation Commission or was in the mood for political payback.

Whatever his true sentiments, his staff notified his brother-in-law Bobby Shriver and actor Clint Eastwood on Monday that they were no longer needed as state park commissioners.

Shriver, 53, a Democrat and brother of First Lady Maria Shriver, and Eastwood, 77, a Republican and former mayor of Carmel, were first appointed to the advisory commission by Gov. Gray Davis in 2001.

Three years later, Schwarzenegger reappointed both of them to four-year terms.
On Tuesday, Shriver said he and Eastwood had submitted requests to serve another four-year term. Eastwood couldn't be reached for comment.

As commissioners, the two men voted to oppose a 16-mile extension of state Route 241 that would connect southern Orange County to Interstate 5 at San Onofre. The toll road would cut across a nature reserve in Orange County and the San Onofre State Beach, a site considered sacred by American Indians and cherished by surfers and campers.

Shriver and Eastwood also supported a lawsuit against the road project that was filed on behalf of the park commission by the state attorney general.

Schwarzenegger publicly endorsed the toll road extension, saying it would reduce traffic congestion. The governor also said the project would allow the financially beleaguered state park department to take advantage of a $100 million grant offered by the Transportation Corridor Agencies in exchange for approval of the road.

The toll road proposal hit a major roadblock in February, when the state Coastal Commission voted 8-2 against it during a hearing at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The Transportation Corridor Agencies has appealed that decision to the U.S. Secretary of Commerce.

Shriver, a city councilman for Santa Monica, felt so strongly about the toll road that he testified against it at the Coastal Commission meeting.

“Whatever the reason was I wasn't reappointed, I'm glad I voted the way I did,” Shriver said Tuesday. “I still think it's a bad idea to put a freeway through a park.”

State park commissioner Caryl Hart of Sebastopol, who last year was appointed to a third term on the panel, said she has little doubt that Schwarzenegger was displeased with his two most high-profile park commissioners.

“It's not really much of a reach,” Hart said. “Doing this broadcasts to other gubernatorial appointees: If you don't follow the party line, you'll be gone.”

Schwarzenegger's press secretary, Aaron McClear, said the governor's decision to replace Shriver and Eastwood wasn't connected to their stand against the toll road.

“The governor believes Mr. Eastwood and Mr. Shriver did an outstanding job on the state parks commission and is grateful for their service,” McClear said. “It's not unusual when commissioners' terms expire to replace them with some fresh legs.”

The deduction behind it might satisfy numerous Christians, who have a great time realizing they are ground-breaking enough to choose one of their own to the most dominant office on earth. What's more, having done as such, they presently anticipate utilizing their political muscles and getting their political payback. buy assignment online | assignment land
