PECONIC BAYKEEPER INC
April 9, 2010
Kevin McAllister, Peconic Baykeeper, was responsible for achieving a DEC Impaired Waterways designation for the Forge River, where I live. The river had become extremely polluted, killing fish and even causing breathing problems in some of the residents living next to it. What impressed me most about Kevin is that when he came head-to-head with his adversaries, he never faltered, never got upset, but delivered his intelligent, fact-filled and convincing presentation with professionalism. He is very knowledgeable and is a tireless, hard-working person who so very obviously cares passionately about his mission to clean up the waters of Long Island. He has my utmost admiration and respect and I would hope that all who have some time and money would donate their resources to this worthwhile group whose main interest is our health and well-being.
