I grew up hiking the Catskills and running the Hurley Rail Trail, and I want to ensure my future children have the same opportunities I had to enjoy our district’s natural beauty.
Our environment is one of our biggest strengths, and we’ve got to protect it.
We rely on our environment not only to provide clean air and clean water for our kids, but also to sustain tourism – generating good jobs and allowing small businesses to succeed.
We are facing some of the greatest environmental challenges of our time. Protecting our planet shouldn’t be a partisan issue, yet Donald Trump continues to push the false choice between a clean environment and economic security, and John Faso has consistently voted for budget proposals and measures rolling back crucial regulations that protect our air and water.
One of Rep. Faso’s first votes in office was to overturn the Stream Protection Rule, allowing coal companies to pollute our waterways. He voted against the interests of his constituents and endangered our natural resources.
I will stand up to Trump and the Republicans’ attacks on our environment.
My environmental policy priorities:
- Protect funding for the cleanup of the Hudson River and Chesapeake Bay Watershed
- Rejoin the Paris Climate Accords
- Make major investments in wind & solar energy
