Dear Jeffrey,

Each week we invite grassroots activists, artists, officials, physicians, parents, young people and others to offer insightful commentary on their Great Lakes experiences and views. Of course, we also invite you to comment on their thoughts.

This week, the Town Hall is pleased to welcome Jared Bartley, who works for the Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District as the Rocky River Watershed Coordinator. Don't miss your chance to read and respond to Jared Bartley's Great Lakes perspectives every day this week - only in the Great Lakes Town Hall!


About Jared Bartley. . .

Jared Bartley is the Rocky River Watershed Coordinator for the Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District, on the shores of Lake Erie in Northeast Ohio. In this role, he is tasked with coordinating the implementation of the Rocky River Watershed Action Plan, which calls for the protection and restoration of streamside forest buffers, the reduction of excess nutrients and fecal bacteria in the Rocky River and its tributaries, and increased public involvement in the stewardship of the watershed.

Jared has a degree in Geology from Case Western Reserve University, and recently returned to northeast Ohio after spending five years promoting agroforestry and organic farming methods in El Salvador as a Peace Corps Volunteer and providing technical and organizational assistance to watershed groups in Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia as a Circuit Rider for Canaan Valley Institute.

In addition to guest speakers, the Great Lakes Town Hall focuses on a new featured Great Lakes issue each week, provided by co-moderators Jeffrey Potter, Dave Dempsey, Gary Wilson, and Brenna Wanous. This week, Brenna discusses the encouraging letter the Council of Great Lakes Governors sent last week to each presidential candidate, asking them to put the Great Lakes on their agenda.

Don't miss this great opportunity to read and comment on our featured issue - Great Lakes Governors hoping for a Great Lakes President - and the thoughts of Jared Bartley, in the Great Lakes Town Hall all this week!

Guest speakers contribute content on a Great Lakes topic of their choice for five days. While there are basic rules of conduct, guest speakers are unedited and diverse views are welcome. If you are interested in serving as a guest speaker, please reply to this email.

Your Great Lakes Neighbor,

Jeffrey Potter
