We’ll discuss the controversial CMP corridor and whether or not the transmission line would help the state reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the company’s green energy goals, and their involvement with the new electric vehicle charging corridor Gov. Janet Mills announced last week.

Jonathan was born in Monsey, New York. A field trip to Washington, DC when he was in 7th grade started him on his circuitous path to a career in public radio. The trip inspired a love of politics and led to his desire to one day call DC home. After graduating from Grinnell College, he worked on a couple of campaigns in Iowa (presidential and congressional) and moved to Washington, DC.
