CGF Welcomes New Legislative Advocate

The Committee for Green Foothills is pleased to add Alice Kaufman to our staff. Alice is a graduate of UC Hastings Law School and the University of Chicago. Her experience as an environmental lawyer includes several years at the Environmental Law Foundation in Oakland, where she worked to enforce laws regarding toxics disclosure, lead paint hazards, and other environmental issues. More recently, Alice has been working as a community activist in Redwood City fighting the massive Cargill/DMB Saltworks development. She is also active with Redwood City public schools and local education issues. Alice’s relationship with CGF began in 2009, when she contributed CEQA comments on behalf of CGF in opposition to a development on the San Mateo County coast. She then joined CGF’s Board of Directors and is now on staff as a Legislative Advocate.
