The Columbus, Ohio-based U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA), a national organization dedicated to protecting the rights of hunters, anglers, and trappers, has opened an office in Sacramento, California, the state capital.
“Expanding our operations is a natural progression...as we plan to move more effectively to protect the interests of sportsmen across the country,” said Nick Pinizzotto, USSA president and CEO.
The Sacremento office will be led by Michael Flores who has a long and productive history of serving California on outdoor-related issues. Flores is a past president of the California Fish and Game Commission, former chairman of the California Wildlife Conservation Board, and has held numerous other prestigious roles, including Secretary for Foreign Affairs for California.
Animal rights organizations have long focused on liberal-leaning California as a juicy target in which to pioneer and polish their anti-hunting initiatives. A resident first line of defense in such a state is a plus for pro-hunting interests all across North America.
