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.
