Things didn’t go exactly as planned at our September 27 meeting. Turns out our guest speaker, Dr. Jon Larson, President of Ocean County College, had a scheduling conflict and couldn’t make it. So we turned to Cindy Randazzo, Director, New Jersey Office of Local Government Assistance. Sadly, there was a death in Cindy’s family that precluded her attendance. Not be be deterred, we turned to Dr. Stan Hales (on the left above), Director of the Barnegat Bay National Estuary Program based at Ocean Community College, who provided an informative update on the state of the bay. On the same critical subject, we also heard from Tom Fote (center), Legislative Chairman of Jersey Coast Anglers Association, and Karen Walzer, Public Outreach Coordinator for the Barnegat Bay Partnership.
