Wow my best friends daughter was just nominated In Oregon to be on the Environmental Quality Comm.
Gov. Kate Brown nominated Amy Schlusser, a staff attorney with the Green Energy Institute, to replace a more industry-friendly commissioner, Wade Mosby, a retired forest products executive.
There is no question she would frequently be in the position of being asked to make decisions as a commissioner that are directly related to the advocacy work she currently engages in, says Preston Mann of Oregon Manufacturers and Commerce. Ultimately, that level of conflict would undermine public trust in the EQC as a whole.
