[box type=”alert”]FOMS believes that the State’s primary responsibility is to serve as guardian of the public interest at Mount Sunapee State Park and to deny efforts that undermine the essential conservation and public recreational values for which the park fundamentally exists to provide.

Commercial development, driven by powerful corporate interests, increasingly threatens public lands. At Mount Sunapee State Park, we must strongly resist the exploitation of our parkland for private financial gain.

Additionally, leaseholders at our state parks must demonstrate sound financial management and ethical practices that inspire public confidence and trust.[/box]
