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.
