What can $85 million do for Lake Erie?

Posted: Tuesday, September 17, 2019 by: Tahree Lane | Category: Community Interest

Joy Mulinex, Gov. Mike DeWine's chief advisor for Lake Erie, will speak at 7 p.m. Oct. 10 at the Toledo Yacht Club. She'll discuss plans for the $85 million included in the governor's H2Ohio initiative this year, to be spent on cleaning and protecting Ohio waters.

Ms. Mulinex is director of the Lake Erie Commission, which includes leaders of six state agencies and private citizens, and makes recommendations about the lake. She's the Governor's primary point person on Lake Erie, the western third of which has suffered for years from massive blooms of harmful algae, which sometimes produces the neurological toxin mycrocystin.

She was previously director of government relations for the Western Reserve Land Conservancy. She managed the bipartisan U.S. House and Senate Great Lakes Task Force in Washington, D.C. and served as then-Senator DeWine's legislative attorney from 1999 to 2001.

The public is invited to hear Ms. Mulinex speak and answer questions from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Lake Erie Waterkeeper meeting in the yacht club, 3900 N. Summit St. Her talk will be followed by the Waterkeeper's roundtable discussion about the health of Lake Erie. Information: lakeeriewaterkeeper.org
