Woman Nominated to Head National Park Service

Yosemite Superintendent B.J. Griffin has been nominated to head the National Park Service by Congressman George Radanovich (R-CA) whose district includes Yosemite. Griffin is the first woman superintendent of the 104-year-old national park and has been described by Radanovich as “one of the most effective people ever to serve the public interest at Yosemite.” Radanovich wrote to Deputy Secretary of the Interior John Garamendi to recommend Griffin after Roger Kennedy resigned as National Park Service director last week. New legislation requires that the director be confirmed by the Senate
