“Call to Action: Families, Neighbors, Communities”
Climate change is upon us, driving the call to action at a very personal level. We must each also work together from the neighborhood to the globe against this challenge. The question is, ‘how’?”
Peter M. Morton’s 61-year career has been predominantly in aviation, including pilot and maintenance training, flight deck design, marketing, program management and executive management. His passion for flight has not dwindled since retirement as the Vice President of Human Relations from Boeing - he consults in aviation training, flight operations, air traffic management, unmanned aircraft and flight data monitoring. And he’s a passionate mentor for youth in aviation.
He also cares passionately about the health of Earth, campaigning for recent carbon fee initiatives and leading the decision by Langley's City Council to endorse I1631. He is a born collaborator and since moving to the island, his notion we are much more effective “working together” has translated into a foray into politics. He currently serves as a member of the Langley City Council.
