New Chief, New Name

Fish and Game director Steve Huffaker has appointed Roger Fuhrman to head the Bureau of Communications, formerly Information and Education. Fuhrman has served as the department's Intergovernmental Policy coordinator for the past two years. In making his announcement about filling the post, Huffaker said he was changing the name of the bureau to make it clear to the public that Fish and Game needs to reinforce the message that the department is involved in two-way communication, not a "one-sided process." "Changing the bureau name signals that we are serious about engaging hunters, anglers, wildlife lovers, elected officials, interest groups and the general public in a discussion about the needs of fish and wildlife," Huffaker said.
