"It is imperative for NJ municipalities to address flooding through climate resilient infrastructure investment...Climate change is not regressing rather progressing. It is important that we meet the challenge of the 21st century, otherwise municipalities will continue to literally see their roads, bridges, and properties underwater in the not so distant future"

New Jersey League of Conservation Voters mourns the passing of New Jersey Board of Public Utilities 's President Joe Fiordaliso. President Fiordaliso was a champion for a clean energy transition, supporting efforts to increase access to renewable energy to clean our air, tackle the climate crisis, and create good-paying, union jobs.

President Fiordaliso's vision and deep commitment to the environment will be greatly missed in both the halls of Trenton and the communities he served as well.

    On Tuesday, April 25th the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters announced a round of endorsements for NJ's May Municipal Election. I am excited to announce that I am the only Verona candidate endorsed by the New Jersey LCV.

    I am thrilled to accept this endorsement from the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters. I am proud of my record of preserving 25 acres of open space in Verona from overdevelopment. If re-elected, I will focus on continuing to take steps to mitigate flooding risks in my community, removing contaminants from our drinking water, supporting waste reduction, and promoting safe walking and biking routes.

    Summary of New Jersey LCV: New Jersey LCV is the statewide political voice for the environment. They work to elect environmentally responsible candidates to state and local offices. Working with their allies in the community, they advocate for strong environmental policies, support their environmental justice partners in pursuing more equitable policies, and hold their elected officials accountable during the legislative session. Through their political work we are strengthening laws that safeguard the health of our communities, working to help foster inclusion and justice, and protect the beauty of our state and our economic future.

    We’re urging Governor Phil Murphy and state legislators to set aside $15 million in this year's budget to build “Capital Park” behind the New Jersey State House. Creating this vibrant green oasis in downtown Trenton would allow more space for residents and visitors to enjoy the outdoors, and connect important city and state cultural assets. Join our walkthrough of the prospective park site Monday, April 24 at noon and show your support for this project!

    Yet you keep pushing the off shore wind turbine scam...do you ever pause to think...maybe we are doing more harm than good? Here is another for you to ponder the harm you are promoting: https://nj1015.com/dolphin-found-dead-on-ocean-city-nj-beach-24th-since-december-cape-may/?utm_source=tsmclip&utm_medium=referral&fbclid=IwAR2b_EbR4ZQR2b04UjyYLobVH3ipqVDIY0JIWrdltwfGWIBFth27hGbeArg
    Off Shore Wind Factories:
    They say you won't see them - you will.
    They say you won't hear then - you will.
    They say they do not harm marine or bird life - they kill.
    They say the create jobs - not as many as will be lost by a 15-30% decline in tourism - estimated at more than $20B per year loss.
    They say folks will want to take tours of the turbines - how nice...as your property values decline.
    Think about why our Governor and NJ Legislature took away home town rule in deciding where OSW would be placed or make landfall....taking away your right to vote on the issue.
    So what good are off shore wind turbines? They do line the pockets of certain politicians, NGOs, higher education institutions by way of grants and gifts.
    Get involved in sending these corporations back to Europe.

    Let's stop killing whales and dolphins. Let's prevent the devastation to NJ tourism and fishing industries. Ask yourselves - why does New Jersey League of Conservation Voters support this? Have you received grants or other monies from the Wind Industry?

    Thank you to New Jersey League of Conservation Voters and their partners for hosting tonight's webinar focusing on Warehouse Sprawl and Engaging Local Officials and Communities. It was wonderful to be a guest speaker along with Musconetcong Watershed Association Executive Director Tom Dallessio!

    Over 180 folks tuned in to learn more about how the public can engage with local boards and governing bodies to address warehouse sprawl throughout New Jersey, with a great showing of residents from Warren County and Phillipsburg/Alpha area!
