The Public Lands Council Monday announced that Kaitlynn Glover joined the organization as its executive director. The Public Lands Council, known as PLC, is a national trade association representing 22,000 ranchers who raise cattle and sheep on federal land. Glover will serve as the chief lobbyist for the organization, representing cattle and sheep producers in western states on resource issues affecting their operations. The legislative and regulatory portfolio focuses on protecting grazing on federal land, and includes the Clean Water Act, tax policy, the Endangered Species Act, property rights, and other matters. Glover says her top priority will focus on policies that “ensure a strong future for agriculture and healthy public lands.” Glover comes to PLC from Wyoming Republican Senator John Barrasso’s office. Originally from Wyoming, Glover has strong ties to grazers, recreationalists, and many other users of public land resources. Glover will also lead the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s natural resources policy portfolio in the organization’s Washington, D.C. office.
