That Committee has endorsed numerous candidates for local, state and federal elections. It is important to let our members know which candidates support environmentally friendly policies, laws and regulations. In 2018 we were very active in the Cincinnati and Dayton geographical areas. At ExCom I have served as the ExCom liaison to the Political Committee and I have performed various functions in support of the Group’s Treasurer. Having a sound financial condition helps the Group succeed in all of its sponsored activities such as Outings, Memorial Trees, workshops, the monthly Innings, our Annual retreat, and more.
