The White House's website says that President Obama is "committed to making this the most open and participatory Administration in history." We haven't found that to be true in our dealing with the Obama Administration's Department of the Interior and Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
For example, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has refused to respond to a letter signed by 25,130 Americans. And despite receiving over 200,000 public comments against wild horse roundups in 2012, the BLM is implementing a policy to ignore form letters sent in by citizens.
A meeting at the White House will allow us to address these issues face to face with the President's staff and begin to open the constructive lines of communication that we've been seeking to build with his Administration.
