Supervisor Charles McGlashan dies of heart attack at 49, Marin County loses a great environmental leader

I've been in contact with Supervisor McGlashan's office for several years regarding Marin County's plastic bag ordinance.  Supervisor McGlashan struck me as a thoughtful yet fearless environmental leader, and I was inspired by his speech at a recent plastic bag hearing where he saw the hundreds of pages of plastics industry's objections for what they were - "bunk."  He will be missed. Marin County's plastic bag ordinance was passed in late January and Marin was sued by the Save the Plastic Bag Coalition.

My condolences go to Supervisor McGlashan's wife Carol Misseldine.
