BELLINGHAM - The board of RE Sources for Sustainable Communities on Aug. 7 named longtime staffer Crina Hoyer as executive director. She had been interim director since February, after the departure of Bob Ferris.
Hoyer started with the organization in 1997. Board President Ken Bronstein touted her "history with the organization, first-hand knowledge of local environmental issues and her strong leadership skills" in the announcement of her appointment, made Tuesday, Aug. 14.
RE Sources has gotten a lot of attention recently for its opposition to a proposed coal export terminal at Cherry Point. Hoyer said in an interview that this issue is not the organization's main focus.
"We're certainly not a single-issue organization, never have been and don't plan on becoming one," Hoyer said.
Among other projects, RE Sources conducts beach cleanups, models sustainable business practices and promotes re-use of construction materials through its RE Store.
