Representative Pallone Visits the Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X CHALLENGE!

By  on August 17, 2011

Frank Pallone, Jr. representing New Jersey's Sixth Congressional District, visited the Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X CHALLENGE today, causing an already energized team (Elastec) to really step up their game. As Pallone toured the Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X CHALLENGE, he had the opportunity to observe an official test run by Elastec and afterwards took time to speak with the team creating great morale among the members.

 

 

Pallone, curious as to how the official tests are calculated, calibrated and results determined, visited the OHMSETT lab.

 

Throughout Pallone?s tenure in Congress, his legislative accomplishments have been geared towards the protection and restoration of environmental resources.  He has successfully worked to stop ocean dumping, obtaining millions of dollars for shore protection and beach replenishment work along a large stretch of the Jersey Coast, for dredging of the area's navigation channels and for the maintenance of his district's National Recreation Area, Sandy Hook. Pallone has distinguished himself as an advocate for environmental issues, making him a definite friend of the Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X CHALLENGE.

Thank you Congressman Pallone for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit.
