On January 15th, Tampa Tiger Bay Club presented a program focusing on environmental issues facing our county and state. Our latest “can’t miss” event was covered by www.SaintPetersBlog.com. It was a great event with over 100 attendees! The program featured Janet Dougherty and Susan Glickman.
Ms. Dougherty is Hillsborough County’s Environmental Protection Commission Executive Director.
The EPC was created in 1967 by special act of the Florida Legislature to control and regulate activities, which are or may reasonably be expected to cause pollution or contamination of air, water, soil and property, or cause excessive and unnecessary noise. Ms. Dougherty is charged with promoting their mission of protecting the natural resources, environment, and quality of life in Hillsborough County.
Ms. Glickman is the Florida Director for the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy and is actively working on the Floridians for Solar Choice constitutional amendment.

She developed and directed The Florida Business Network for a Clean Energy Economy, a coalition of business leaders working together to advance the clean energy economy.
