Candidates for the executive committee for the Catoctin Group (Carroll, Frederick, and Washington Counties) ask group members for their votes.
Ive served as the Catoctin Group chair for 3 terms (6 years) and have worked to re-energize the group with regularly scheduled executive committee meetings and new programs. With the help of fellow excom members, we have generated a new web page, launched active Cool Cities campaigns in Frederick and Westminster, and sponsored a range of outings and events. We continue to partner with individuals and groups to host educational programs in our communities. Im seeking re-election to this committee to help keep the momentum going. Id like to organize an invasive species removal team and establish Sierra Club Student Coalitions on college campuses in our area.
Im a deep ecologist who believes that education and a spiritual connection to Nature are necessary for any real, systemic change to occur. Ours is a noble cause. The more help we have the more we can do. Join our team. Its rewarding to work with a dedicated group of people who care about the future of our planet and humanity. I can assure you: you wont be asked to do any more than you want or feel cabable of doing. Together, we can change the world.
Ive been an outdoor enthusiast for the past 30 years. I enjoy hiking, biking, camping, and white water rafting. I served as a Boy Scout leader and led several camping trips. Ive lived in the Mt. Airy area for about 15 years. I have my own company that focuses on helping high-tech companies develop new business. I am passionate about protecting the environment, and see volunteering on the Catoctin executive board as a way to make a difference.
