To Richard Mays, the “environment” includes everything that impacts our quality of life. He has spent much of his life attempting to preserve and protect not only the air, water and earth from which we live, but also the social, civic and human elements that make our lives richer, safer and more secure.
Mays has handled environmental cases protecting the Buffalo River from the impacts of hog-farming, preventing boat docks from crowding Greers Ferry Lake, fighting construction of coal-fired electrical generating plants and opposing the herbicide Dicamba that kills native plant life.
He also fights for social and civic causes, suing the state’s attorney general for attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 national general election, the unconstitutional use of taxes to expand highways, and the neglect of the historic Pike-Fletcher-Terry House in the Quapaw Quarter (in photo background).
In doing so, Mays takes on large agencies, such as the Corps of Engineers and the federal and state Transportation Departments; chemical, oil, gas and pipeline companies and others that violate the rights of individuals and small entities as well as entrenched political interests.
