Environment 

Cities are at the forefront of addressing the urgent threat of climate change. As a coastal community, we must commit to prioritizing sustainable solutions that protect our environment, and promote environmental justice. As State Representative, I was proud to co-sponsor green energy legislation to promote 40% renewable energy by 2030, to support the Long Island Sound Blue Plan to protect our precious water sources, and to earn a 100% rating from the CT League of Conservation Voters on their 2019 scorecard. As Mayor, I would: 

  • Launch a Stamford Climate Change plan that focuses on implementing environmentally friendly and sustainable policies across our city.

  • Commit to a plan to become carbon neutral, add more electric vehicles to our roads, and transition to more renewable energy sources.

  • Address environmental injustices that contribute to poor health outcomes

  • Create more green spaces in neighborhoods throughout the city.
