Mass Audubon Meets with Senator Markey

Mass Audubon President Gary Clayton, Director of Public Policy Jack Clarke, and Legislative Director Karen Heymann met with Senator Edward J. Markey and other groups to brainstorm strategies for working with the incoming Presidential administration and new Congress on critical environmental issues.

During the meeting, Senator Markey highlighted Massachusetts’ success in moving forward a clean energy economy while keeping unemployment lower than the national average. This message will be key in reminding legislators on both sides of the aisle that a clean environment is part and parcel of a healthy economy.
