Michael Turner is a vice president of the MWW Group and heads the company's toxic waste and development practice.

"If builders and polluters are on the dark side of New Jersey's environmental wars, Michael Turner is Darth Vader," writes Alexander Lane. "A public relations man and lobbyist, he has fought for the Windy Acres development in Hunterdon County, the Xanadu project in the Meadowlands and a strip mall near Edison Township's beloved Oak Tree Pond.

He represents Shieldalloy Corp. as it seeks to leave radiological contamination in South Jersey, Diamond Shamrock Chemicals Co.'s corporate descendants in their bid to leave dioxin in the Passaic River, and Roseland Property as it defends a decision to leave chromium under condominiums in Weehawken." Lane profiles Turner's career as an employee of the MWW Group, a PR firm that brainstorms how to "discredit opposition" such as the Interfaith Community Organization, the Meadowlands Conservation Trust and the Hackensack Riverkeeper.
