Glennon steps back into Adirondack environment "wars"

Listen to this story
One of the most controversial and colorful figures in modern Adirondack Park history is Bob Glennon.

Glennon is an attorney who served as executive director of the APA from 1988 through 1995.

He held that leadership role at a time when the state agency was often fiercely at odds with local government and pro-development groups.

Gennon later served 12 years in the state Attorney General's office.

After retiring last November, Glennon, who lives in Ray Brook, announced that he hoped to take a leadership role once again in the Park's environmental movement.

Glennon sat down recently to talk with Brian Mann. They spoke about the Park's environmental challenges, about the recent Big Tupper decision, and about the leadership of APA chairwoman Lani Ulrich.
