Ben Alexandro, former Water Policy Director

Thank you to everyone who has supported Maryland LCV, for an amazing six years. It is with mixed emotions that I am leaving Maryland LCV today. I have accepted a new job at the League of Conservation Voters as the Senior Government Affairs Advocate for their conservation program in Washington DC. 

Thank you to these amazing and talented people I am honored to call coworkers and colleagues. They fight tirelessly to make Maryland, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the communities we live in better every single day.  Everyone here at Maryland LCV is not only a powerhouse in their field and rock stars at making sure we are the premier organization at getting bills passed and making change happen in Maryland, but every single person here is honest, kind hearted, and I consider each a true friend. 

Together we have helped protect and regrow forests across the state, fund countless projects to save the Chesapeake Bay and improve our local waterways and be a watchdog for clean water. I have never had a job where I felt like I was making such a huge positive impact for our state. None of this would have been possible without the generous and steadfast support from you and every member of the Maryland League of Conservation Voters.

This opportunity with LCV in Washington DC is an exciting new chapter.  I will be helping America preserve 30% of its land and water by 2030. I may even have the opportunity to work with the Biden administration and Congress to create new national monuments and national parks. I’m confident I can do great things on the national scale thanks to all the skills I learned from the partners here over the last six years. It is bittersweet because I will truly miss it here in Annapolis. 

Thank you, Maryland LCV, for making this an amazing place to work and one of if not the best job I have ever had. Thank you for your continued support of this amazing organization. It has been an honor.
