Re: greenyes-d Digest V01 #101
Does it?  I have three voices to speak with in the house and senate.  Is my
voice heard at AF&PA?   I wish Chris, good luck (cause she'll need it).  I
think Daves tone is a bit hot, but he has a point.

>> I do know Christine McCoy - I have known her for about 2 years and have
read her posts on my local community listserv for at least that long.
>>
>> Christine is my neighbor and she makes a huge personal commitment and
sacrifice for the environment.  This is the third year in a row that she has
personally spearheaded through her force of personality an Earthday project
to clean-up my neighborhood.  Many who know her would say she does more for
the neighborhood and the environment than anyone else they know, hands down.
She does not own a car, but walks, rides her bike, or uses public
transportation.
>>
>> I can not recall where Christine worked prior to AF&PA, but she took this
job since I met her.  I think she finds it a challenge and an opportunity to
lead and be a change agent in an organization that does not always have the
best reputation in environmental social circles.  In her position at AF&AP
she has the opportunity to change minds where many decisions about the
environment are made.  I can't say she would always be successful in her
efforts (who is?), but I can not fathom Christine being rolled by anyone.
She is polite, but speaks her mind.  She takes action.  I am sure her
employers know she is an environmentalist.
