“We have an incredible opportunity with this committee to create a nexus that sustains our environment, ensures environmental justice and equity, and helps build a green economy for today and into the future,” said Croskey. “Guided by Mayor Scott’s vision, a new chapter has begun in Baltimore, and I am ready to apply my expertise and passion to achieve these important initiatives. Given the immense opportunities that Baltimore has provided for me personally, and for MD Energy Advisors, I am confident that we can make a significant and positive impact on behalf of the City of Baltimore and its residents.”
Joining Croskey on the mayor’s committee is MD Energy Advisor’s Jonathan Kosobucki, P.E., C.E.M., Senior Energy Engineer.
