NORTHWEST INDIAN FISHERIES COMMISSION SAYS TRIBES APPLAUD APPOINTMENT OF BOB TURNER AS ACTING DIRECTOR OF WASHINGTON DEPARTMENT OF FISHERIES
 OLYMPIA, Wash., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Northwest Treaty Indian Tribes today voiced strong support for Gov. Booth Gardner's appointment of Bob Turner as acting director of the Washington State Department of Fisheries, Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission said. Turner replaces Joe Blum, who resigned his position after five and a half years to take a job outside of state government.
 "We are saddened that Joe is leaving," said Bill Frank Jr., chairman of the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission. "Cooperative management succeeded under Joe because of his commitment to the process. He withstood many challenges by those who would like to roll back cooperative management, and the resource is stronger for his efforts."
 The tribes have great confidence in Turner's abilities, Frank said. "Bob has worked closely with the tribes during the past decade on a wide range of natural resource issues and processes, such as the U.S./Canada Salmon Interception Treaty, water resources and forest practices. As the governor's special assistant on natural resources, Bob is well prepared for his new job as director of the Washington Department of Fisheries," Frank said.
 "We look forward with confidence in continuing our cooperative efforts with the state to protect and enhance the salmon resource and all of our natural resources for the benefit of us all, as well as future generations," Frank said.
