Safeguarding our Environment
Here on Long Island we have some of the greatest coastlines and parks in the country.
During my career I have been an advocate for the environment. I have fought for laws that seek to hold polluters accountable and helped to fund environmentally sustainable projects here on Long Island.
Working with both Republicans and Democrats in Albany, I championed a law that helps the taxpayers go after those who polluted the state’s drinking water. (1)
I will work to bring funding to Suffolk to better equip our local authorities with the resources they need to continue to stay ahead of emerging water contaminants.
Further, I will advocate for funding to add more sewers throughout this district. Not only are sewers better for the environment by reducing harmful chemicals from seeping into our drinking water, but it also helps in the revitalization of our communities – supporting our cherished small businesses.
