Prior to joining the OLCV staff, I volunteered on the steering committee of OLCV’s Lane County chapter. One of the things that really appealed to me as a steering committee member was OLCV’s local environmental scorecard process. It was such a great way to evaluate whether or not the hard work we put into electing local candidates in Lane County had actually translated into protecting the environment.
