Speaker's Bios

Judy Haberek has spent most of my life in Washington, DC where I worked on Capitol Hill and also was an editor/reporter for a variety of specialized newsletters on environmental and health care issues. I left Washington in 2003 for the eastern shore of Maryland which politically prepared me for my move to Polk County in 2017.  I started volunteering for the Polk Democrats in 2018. 

The environmental caucus was reformed in May of this year and we are still in an organizational mode.  We have worked on taking part in national drive electric week and are interested in exploring ways to recycle more and cut back on plastics.  Starting next year of course, we will ramp up efforts to get environmentalists elected to public office.
