As Virginia Governor-elect Ralph Northam prepares to take the reins of state government in early January, three SELC attorneys are sharing their expertise with transition teams for the Northam administration.
Senior Attorney Trip Pollard, who oversees SELC’s Land and Community Program, is serving on the workgroup focused on transportation. The Policy Council on Transportation, like all the working groups, is comprised of stakeholders from across the Commonwealth to provide information and recommendations.
David Carr, SELC General Counsel, is participating in the policy work group focused on Agriculture and Forestry, where his decades working to secure healthier forests across our region will be a valuable asset.
Attorney Will Cleveland, who leads SELC’s energy work in Virginia, is contributing to the policy workgroup focused on natural resources, which includes consideration of the energy portfolio in the Commonwealth.
The three groups are in various stages of meeting, compiling information, and reporting back to the Northam and his Cabinet. Northam will be sworn in as the 73rd Governor of Virginia on January 13.
