Susan Daggett is an independent environmental consultant who currently sits on the Denver Water Board. In the past, she has worked with conservation groups to address the impact associated with oil and gas development in the Mountain West. Prior to her consulting work, Susan Daggett was the lead attorney for the Denver office of Earthjustice, a non-profit public interest law firm, (formerly the Sierra Club Legal Defense Fund) where she represented nonprofit environmental groups in litigation under the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Water Act and a variety of other environmental statutes. Ms. Daggett has more than 13 years of experience serving as an attorney for various organizations, including the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council. She currently serves on the Board of Trustees and as Policy Committee Chair for The Nature Conservancy of Colorado and is also a member of Greenprint Denver, an initiative of the Denver Mayor's Office to promote the importance of sustainable development and ecologically-friendly practices.
One more thing about Susan Daggett . . .
she's married to Michael F. Bennet, the replacement for Ken Salazar from Colorado in the US Senate. I'll also note this what brought Michael and Susan to Denver was Susan's job for the Sierra Club. I don't know much about Michael Bennet but I sure do like his wife's strong environmental record.
