Gwen Mason Leaving Clean Valley Council

UPDATE: Tuesday, 7 a.m.

Clean Valley Council Executive Director Gwen Mason will leave her newly-appointed position for a job with the federal government in Roanoke, she says. Mason, who is finishing her term on Roanoke City Council, as well, says she "can't tell you much at all at this point," but that she is "being considered for a job with the federal government, here in Roanoke [that she] turned down once. {I] think highly of CVC [and am] concentrating very hard on finding a good replacement for a beloved organization."

Yesterday's post:

Diana Christopulos of the Roanoke Valley Cool Cities Coalition says in an e-mail to me that “a larger job has come calling for Gwen Mason after an all-too-brief tenure at Clean Valley Council here in Roanoke.”

Gwen apparently has said the new job is with the federal government and she will need security clearance before it is confirmed. She tells Diana it is a "job that will benefit the people of Southwest Virginia."

I’m working on finding out the details as we speak. Gwen is finishing out a term on Roanoke City Council and has a history of working closely with the environment. She replaced Ann Masters, who died in December, at the CVC. The CVC is taking applications in its process to replace Gwen.
