POLITICS of the ENVIRONMENT
Presented by Mike Berkowitz & Richard Barron
Find out what the Michigan legislature has been up to on our environmental issues, how your lawmakers voted on those issues, what the 2014 election is looking like, esp. in SEMG's districts, and how the results will impact our region and state. A Q&A will follow. Richard Barron is a member of the Chapter ExCom and Chair of Political, Legal & Nominating Committees and a member of the Nepessing Group. Mike Berkowitz staffs the Chapter's Political Committee which is charged with endorsing candidates and working to get those pro-environment candidates elected to office. Mike also staffs the Legislative Committee, which is charged with passing progressive environmental bills through Michigan's legislature. Mike has been nationally recognized for creating a successful Political Internship Program. He serves on the Board of Directors for the Michigan Student Sustainability Coalition and in 2013 was recognized as one of Michigan's Top 5 progressive political organizers.
