Mare has been with Clean Water Action for 20 years. He has personally raised over $3 Million in member contributions since they started working for the organization. Under his direction, the Oakland Phone Canvass improved its gross by 100%, hitting its first million-dollar year in 2008 and raising between $1.2 and $1.3 Million annually since then. Mare is currently working as the Western Regional Canvass Supervisor (since 2013), which involves supervising our field and phone programs in California, Texas and Minnesota. Before coming to Clean Water Action, he worked for Greenpeace for almost six years in their field canvass in the early '90s, in their Boston and San Francisco offices.
