We’d like to announce that Matt Vander Sluis, the League’s Global Warming Program Manager, will be leaving Sacramento for the San Francisco Bay Area to join our allies at Greenbelt Alliance in early April. For more than five years, Matt has been an exceptional asset to the Planning and Conservation League, using his policy expertise and political savvy to help us win a wide range of environmental battles. Since 2007, he has led our successful campaigns to advance climate change policy at the local, regional, state, and national level, with a focus on climate-smart land use policies and safeguarding wildlife and communities from the effects of global warming. We’ve begun the process of seeking a new staff member to build upon Matt’s legacy and welcome your suggestions. For more information, please contact Tina Andolina, the League’s Legislative Director. She can be reached at email@example.com, or 916-313-4521.
