(Columbus, OH) November 25, 2020 – Earlier today, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced the appointment of Crystal M.C. Davis, the Alliance’s Vice President for Policy and Strategic Engagement, to a three-year term on the Ohio Lake Erie Commission.

In response, Davis issued the following statement:

“I thank Gov. DeWine for the opportunity, and I’m honored to accept this appointment to the Ohio Lake Erie Commission. As a native Ohioan and someone who grew up loving Lake Erie, this is a special honor.

Through my work at the Alliance for the Great Lakes, I’ve been able to combine my passion for advocacy on behalf of urban communities with my deep care for and connection to the Great Lakes, helping to ensure people’s access to fresh, clean water.

As part of the commission, I will continue to strive for progress and accountability in Lake Erie clean-up programs while also making sure the voices of impacted communities are at the table at all stages of the decision-making process. Let’s get to work!”
