Remembering an Arlington Environmental Leader

Just learning some tragic news. Earlier this month, former Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment board member Erik Bluemel was killed in a bike accident in Denver. He was just 32 years old.

The Denver Post details Erik's commitment to environmental protection:

He served as a staff attorney and teaching fellow at the Georgetown University Law Center's Institute for Public Representation, where he represented dozens of national and local groups on administrative, environmental and public-land issues.
