Dinner & Democracy: Making Democracy Work

Program: How Clean is our Drinking Water? Come join us Monday, February 18, at Lang House. At this forum, environ-mental attorney Tom Fitzgerald talks about pollution in the Ohio River. He'll discuss the role of ORSANCO -- The Ohio River Sanitation Commission, which monitors river pollutants. He was appointed by President Obama in 2014 as one of three Federal Commissioners on ORSANCO. Attorney Fitzgerald, "Fitz," has been Director of the Kentucky Resources Council (KRC) since 1984. KRC is a non- profit environmental advocacy organization that provides free legal, strategic and policy assistance to individuals, organizations and communities concerning environmental quality and resource extraction issues. According to the Courier- Journal, 12-30-18, "Fitzgerald has been working for 40 years to stop legislation that could dirty our streams, pollute our air and trash our state. . ."
