After a wonderful year and a half as the Baltimore Harbor Waterkeeper at Blue Water Baltimore, and five years in the Baltimore area, I have decided to move to California in September to “test other waters.”
This is a bittersweet farewell for me, as I have grown extremely fond of the Baltimore area, the amazing people, and the struggling yet resilient Baltimore Harbor, and I am truly passionate about the Waterkeeper movement.
However I’ve decided to take my career in a more spiritual direction and will be pursuing a masters degree in Los Angeles.
I want to thank each and every one of you out there that have supported me and the Waterkeeper program over the past year and a half.
During this time our program has accomplished a ton—including effective advocacy on municipal stormwater pollution, trash in our neighborhoods and Harbor, industrial pollution, and last but not least, sewage pollution.
I have met many amazing citizen advocates and I am confident that we will find a new Waterkeeper that is equally dedicated to tackling the extreme pollution issues faced by the Baltimore streams, rivers and Harbor.
While we are conducting a national search for the next Baltimore Harbor Waterkeeper, the staff at Blue Water Baltimore and the Baltimore Harbor Waterkeeper program will continue to use the law and sound science to continue our advocacy initiatives and hold polluters and government accountable.
We look forward to your continued support of our work moving forward in order to ensure clean water and healthy communities in Baltimore!
