CBF Statement on Death of Former Virginia Gov. Gerald Baliles

Chesapeake Bay Foundation President William C. Baker issued this statement following the death of former Governor Gerald Baliles.

“Governor Baliles was a leader in the early fight to save the Chesapeake Bay. The partnership he forged with the other Bay states provided the foundation for Bay restoration efforts. That foundation, which continues today, is our best hope to leave a legacy of clean water for our children and grandchildren.
“We’re grateful for Governor Baliles’ many contributions to the Bay and saddened by his passing.”
