We will meet at the home of James and Lynn Chinnis, 29 Brookshire Drive, Warrenton
This month we will hear an update on the status of uranium mining in Virginia from Rob Mamet of the Piedmont Environmental Cpuncil.
Rob is Senior Energy Policy Analyst with the Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC) in Warrenton. Rob came to PEC in 2007 as a part of the legal team that opposed the Dominion Power TrAIL line through Virginia. Working with outside counsel and experts Rob helped focus testimony and prepare witnesses for the hearings at the State Corporation Commission. Subsequently Rob coordinated PEC’s successful opposition to the PATH high voltage transmission line that was proposed to run through Frederick, Clarke and Loudoun Counties in Virginia. Most recently Rob has continued to work on energy issues at PEC. He splits his time between energy and uranium issues.
Prior to coming to PEC Rob worked for a family-owned radio station in Frederick Maryland. Before that he was a Magistrate Judge in South Dakota where he and his wife practiced law.
