New Adirondack Council director looks to common ground



Appointed State Department of Environmental Conservation Region 3 director by former Gov. Eliot Spitzer in 2007, Janeway held that job for six years before joining the Adirondack Council.

So a two-year ethics rule prevents him from engaging in any DEC negotiation process.

Before his DEC job, he was the director of government relations for the New York offices of the Nature Conservancy.

Janeway was the first trails coordinator for the Adirondack Mountain Club and helped establish the summit steward program in the High Peaks.

A graduate of St. Lawrence University, he holds degrees in both environmental science and economics.

He is in the process of buying a home and moving with his family to Keene Valley.
