The Environment

Mission: We are privileged to live in one of the most beautiful places in the country and we have a responsibility to keep our water, air, and land safe and clean. We must also protect our district and country from the effects of climate change. I strongly oppose fracking; fracking would destroy our beautiful district and poison our lands. I support the current NY State moratorium on hydraulic-fracturing and federal funding for climate change research, as well as policy based on the scientific method.

  • There are great opportunities for scientific innovation, discovery, and research for renewable energies and Southern Tier New York should be at the forefront.
  • We must keep the Environmental Protection Agency fully staffed and funded, an issue that historically has had bipartisan support.
  • We must rejoin the Paris Accords.
