Congratulations to former San Mateo planning commissioner Kelly Moran, who was recently reappointed to the state’s “Green Ribbon Science Panel.” The panel brings together 15 dedicated scientists, engineers and business leaders to advise on critical aspects and components needed to implement the Safer Consumer Products regulation. Its goal is to ensure that when Californians go to the store to purchase products for their children and themselves that they can know that those products won’t be harmful to their families or to the environment.

And if you know anything about Moran, and her commitment to the environment, you know she is a true benefit to this panel’s work.
