THE ENVIRONMENT

            We need to protect our air quality, restore our water quality, and most urgently, fight climate change. I am proud of the work we have done to become the first American city with 100% renewable energy. We need to continue on the path to reducing our carbon footprint, waste, and single occupancy vehicle use. In the last two years I have:

  • Introduced a 2019 ballot item to reduce plastic bag use that was unanimously advanced by the City Council.

  • Supported initiatives that reduce stormwater entering Lake Champlain.

  • Helped establish our “Urban Wilds Corridor”

  • Successfully advocated for developers to meet higher energy-efficiency and green-building standards.
