"Sean Cosgrove in the Sierra Club's Washington office is my environmental hero. As a member of the End Commercial Logging Committee, I have had frequent contact with him and he constantly amazes me with his knowledge of Congressional members-who they are and how they have voted on various issues. Sean is our national forest expert and he is doing a terrific job of helping our committee be effective."
