Petition Background

A behind-­‐the-­‐scenes effort to terminate Dr. Charles Lester, Executive Director of the California Coastal Commission has just come to light. The attack on Executive Director Lester is an attack on the Coastal Act itself. This power grab is an attempt to undermine the Coastal Program, gain control over an independent staff, and make the Commission more developer-friendly without any public accountability or transparency. Ironically, this comes at a time when Director Lester has gained major accomplishments for the protection of the CA coast.
