Farewell to ExCom Member Mary Jane Ortega

ICLEI acknowledges the tremendous support given to ICLEI by Mary Jane Ortega as she officially steps down as a member of ICLEI’s 2006-2009 Executive Committee. Ms Ortega left municipal politics as Mayor of San Fernando La Union (Philippines) on 30 June, and at that time, relinquished her duties on the Executive Committee.  The new Mayor of San Fernando La Union is Mr. Pablo Ortega. Ms Ortega has been an active member of ICLEI’s Executive Committee, and in that capacity as well as her membership in the World Mayors Council on Climate Change, Ms Ortega has represented the organization well in numerous conference and international events. As Lady Mayor Ortega was elected for the "Southern Asia" region, ICLEI’s Executive Committee will consider the appointment of a candidate from the Southern Asia region to fill the vacancy at its annual meeting later this year.
