In May of 2014, Mayor Ed Lee appointed Debbie Raphael as the Director of the San Francisco Department of the Environment, a city agency that creates visionary policies and programs to ensure a sustainable future for San Francisco. Raphael returns to San Francisco after three years leading the California Department of Toxic Substances Control, where she worked to balance stakeholder interests in protecting the public and environment from toxic harm. She graduated with honors in biology from the University of California, Berkeley, was a Smithsonian and National Science Foundation fellow, and has a Master’s degree in Physiological Plant Ecology from UCLA.

 

Laura Tam coordinates SPUR's work in five major policy areas: green buildings, water supply, wastewater, energy and climate change. In this role since 2007, she works to improve climate resilience and reduce the environmental footprint of cities. As a thought leader on climate adaptation and water management, she has produced and participated in numerous public programs, citywide task forces, major research reports and advocacy recommending strategies for sea level rise, water efficiency and reuse, green infrastructure and reducing climate-change emissions. She has a Master’s degree in environmental management from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and a BA in geography from Dartmouth College.
