Governor Rick Scott Appoints Three to Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
On March 8th Governor Rick Scott announced the newest appointees to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). CCA Florida would like to congratulate the FWC appointees. The FWC is made up of 7 Commissioners appointed by the Governor to manage Florida's fish and wildlife. Commissioners are appointed for a five year term by the Governor and are confirmed by the Florida Senate.
It gives CCA Florida great pleasure to welcome back Commissioner Ken Wright, Commissioner Ron Bergeron and Commissioner Dick Corbett to the FWC Commission. Their commitment to the conservation of fish and wildlife in Florida is evidenced by the hard work they have done in the past and we know they will continue that strong leadership as we move forward with these tested and trusted Commissioners.
We are excited to begin working with new Commissioner Bo Rivard who Governor Scott appointed last Friday. Bo Rivard is an outdoor minded sportsman who we trust will continue the tradition of protecting Florida’s unique fishery for the enjoyment of our State’s recreational anglers as well as the many visitors who come to enjoy Florida’s vast outdoor activities.
With these most recent appointments the FWC is now made up as follows:
Chairman: Ken Wright
CCA Florida is pleased to continue working with old friends and begin new relationships in the fight to conserve, promote, and enhance our coastal resources for the benefit and enjoyment of the general public. We applaud Governor Scott, our new Commissioner and our reappointed Commissioners.
