Welcome to the first newsletter of the 2023 Legislative session! All eyes are on the Capitol as we monitor bills to provide clean drinking water, protect our public lands, and lower utility bills by allowing Community Solar on our energy grid.
We are excited to introduce you to this year’s lobby team, which includes veteran Lucia Valentine and new lobby team member Maria Russo. We also welcome our communications coordinator, Jillian Welsh, to this amazing team. The session began on Wednesday, January 11, and we are off to a running start promoting our legislative priorities and meeting with legislators to advocate for members like you.
We are excited to announce E-Day will return in person this year on February 28! We hope you will join us by registering at the link in the announcement below. Need a little fun during this time? Enjoy a night of music with Swingstein and Robin at the Empty Glass on Thursday, January 19, from 5:30 – 7:30 PM. All tips will be donated to WVECouncil to help support our work.
