Hello Board Members and general membership.
My name is Edwin Lake and I would like to formally declare myself a candidate for a seat on the Board of Directors for the Society of Environmental Journalists.
I have been freelancing environmental and food stories, working primarily with the Food and Environment Reporting Network for the last two years. I have been a working journalist for over twenty years.
For the past 25 years, I have written on everything from illegal logging to Formula One racing in the United States, Dubai, Jakarta and Boston. My years of experience in the United States and abroad would bring a fresh voice and unique perspective to the board.
"Mountain Valley Pipeline was given another two years Friday to complete a natural gas pipeline already marked by six years of community opposition, environmental damage, legal fights and delays."

I am writing this letter to state my interest in becoming a member of the board for the Society of Environmental Journalists.
