I recently contacted the OEC for information about hydraulic fracturing in the state of Ohio. They were quick to respond and I was able to speak at length with Trent Dougherty, their legal affairs director. He was very knowledgeable and helpful and gave me a great deal of background on both the legal framework for fracking, and the current situation in the state of Ohio. I also spoke to Jack Shaner, director of legislative affairs, who filled me in on the latest news from the Ohio legislature. I found the information that I received to be very helpful. The OEC does its homework and has earned a well-deserved reputation as a leader in helping to protect Ohio's environment. I believe that the OEC is an essential environmental resource for all Ohioans.

I became aware of the OEC some years ago because I kept seeing it referenced in media coverage of the Ohio environmental issues of concern to me. I came to know OEC as a champion of environmental causes, and one that works in a most practical, efficient manner. Whether it's doing solid research, educating Ohio's policymakers about the steps that must be taken to protect our land, water and resources, or taking legal action when needed, the OEC is an effective advocate for the environment. OEC uses its own resources wisely; I am confident that the monthly contributions I make to the organization will be well-utilized and have the maximum impact. I am proud to be a member.
