Vice chair, at-large member
Christine Green joined MEC’s board in 2008. She is a member of its ad hoc bylaws review, development and executive committees. As vice chair, she brings a host of leadership experience with her. She works with or serves on the board of Ecology Center, Michigan League of Conservation Voters, Michigan Indigent Defense Commission, Planned Parenthood and Scio Township.
As a Scio Township trustee, Green has brought climate change action to the local level. She has introduced and passed ordinances protecting waterways and open spaces from development; creating more parks, preserves and affordable housing; and directing development next to protected parcels. The board at large is aggressively working to hold a corporate polluter accountable and connecting a non-motorized trail to the Huron River.
The University of Michigan law school graduate has brought her relentless fight for local environmental preservation to MEC. She seeks to help supply municipalities with clean water, carbon neutrality plans and a statewide septic code.
When the former civil rights lawyer is not in her home township, she may be hiking the preserves and parks across the state. Or, she and her husband could be at their nearly century-old cabin on Torch Lake, her favorite place in the world.
