Coalition Presses East Hampton Candidates On Environmental Positions

Articles | September 26, 2013

The Town of East Hampton has a long record of sustainability leadership, particularly on the issue of open space. But there are many steps the town can take to continue to improve its environmental performance–and the town’s elected leaders will play a critical role in this effort.

For this reason, the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund and the East Hampton Environmental Coalition are pleased to present the East Hampton Green Guide as a resource for all candidates running for town office in 2013.

The East Hampton Green Guide is a one-stop-shop for candidates, policy makers and current elected officials to learn about new opportunities and approaches to persistent sustainability challenges.

In conjunction with the Green Guide, NYLCVEF has issued an 2013 Environmental Survey for all candidates running for East Hampton Town Board. The purpose of the survey is to educate voters on the candidate’s views on local environmental issues.

On Friday, September 20, members of the EHEC gathered to announce the release of the Green Guide and Survey. You can check out coverage of the announcement in the Sag Harbor Express and East Hampton Patch.

The Green Guide and candidate survey was developed by NYLCVEF in consultation with the following 12 other local partner organizations of the East Hampton Environmental Coalition listed below, in order to embrace a wide range of views and objectives.
