“As a long-time parks advocate and outdoor enthusiast, I am honored to receive the endorsement and support of CPRS. The 16th District, like much of California, is fortunate to have access to so many beautiful parks, and we need to continue working together to protect our open spaces and promote strong stewardship of our parklands. I will continue to work across the aisle to support our state, regional, and local park systems, and I am thankful CPRS recognizes my efforts to do just that,” said Baker.
