Michigan Environmental Council President Ms. Lana Pollack will be the
Featured Newsmaker at the next Breakfast with Mort.  Ms. Pollack entered
politics in 1979 when she was elected to the Ann Arbor School Board.  She
went on to serve in the Michigan State Senate from 1982 until 1994.  She
was the Michigan Senate's only Democratic woman for eight years, and became
a leading advocate for the environment, and children's and women's rights.
She earned praise as  an architect of Michigan's landmark Polluter Pay
statute in 1990. 
Ms. Pollack currently is President of the influential Michigan
Environmental Council. The Council is a coalition of 50 environmental and
public health organizations with 100,000 individual members. The Council's
Board of Directors adopted four priority issues for 1998. They are: Jobs
and the Environment; Land Stewardship; Children's Health; and The Right To
Know.  Come hear her views in response to the panels penetrating questions,
and learn from her experiences on the current state of environmental
politics and policy at Breakfast with Mort!
The Breakfast will be held on Tuesday, November 10, 1998, at the Dearborn
Inn, located at 20301 Oakwood Boulevard, between Michigan Avenue and
Rotunda Drive, just north of Interstate 94.  A complete breakfast will be
served beginning at 7:30 a.m. in the Early American Room.  The program
begins with a panel interview of Ms. Pollack at 8:30 a.m. in the Alexandria
Ballroom and will conclude at approximately 10:30 a.m..
The Breakfast With Mort series is sponsored by the East Michigan Chapter of
the Air & Waste Management Association.  The Breakfast was developed to
provide interested professionals an innovative and inexpensive forum for
discussing and debating breaking environmental issues and policy including
air and water pollution, soil and groundwater remediation, solid and
hazardous wastes, brownfield redevelopment, etc..  The program generally
follows the pattern of the original This Week with David Brinkley
television show on ABC Sunday mornings.  Regular panel members first
interview the Featured Newsmaker and questions from the audience are
encouraged.
After questioning the Featured Newsmaker, the panel members open a spirited
questioning of each other on any environmental matter that may arise.
Since the program is not scripted beforehand, the questions and responses
are fascinating and can take a surprising turn.
 The program is lively, informal, unrehearsed, and fast paced.  Previous
Featured Newsmakers included  United  States Congressman  Mr.  John
Dingell;  Mr. Russell  Harding,  Director  of the Michigan Department of
Environmental Quality; Michigan State Representative Mr. Kenneth Sikkema ,
Dr. George Wolff, Senior Scientist, General Motors Corporation, and Mr.
David Kee, recently retired Chief of the Air & Radiation Division, USEPA,
Region V. 
The moderator is Mr. Mort Sterling (for whom the program is named),
Principal with the Sterling Consulting Group, and past Director of both
Environmental Protection for the Detroit Edison Company and the Wayne
County Air Quality Management Division.  The panel consists of: Dr. William
Cooper, Professor of Zoology, Michigan State University; Ms. Karen
Kendrick-Hands, Environmental Attorney; and Mr. Tim O'Brien, Director,
Environmental Quality Office for the Ford Motor Company.

Breakfast.
