Our Environmental Candidate Forum for Niskayuna Supervisor
September 18, 2019
Every two years, the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund and the NYLCV Capital Region Chapter develops its own policy agenda after receiving input from environmental partner organizations. This Blueprint for a Greener Capital Region provides specific actions government officials can take to fight climate change, conserve our lands and waters, and protect public health.
Often, voters do not have the opportunity to hear directly from candidates about their position on environmental issues. That’s why the NYLCVEF hosts candidate forums such as the one Monday, September 16, 2019 for Niskayuna Town Supervisor.
Scores of Niskayuna residents attended this forum to hear Supervisor Yasmine Syed (R) and her opponent Town Board Member Lisa Weber (D) as they answered questions posed by moderators and NYLCV Capital Region Chapter Board Members John Greenthal and Peter Trimarchi.
Among of topics discussed at this forum included sustainable and transit-oriented development priorities, clean energy strategies, and Climate Smart Community among other issues.< Back to Our Work
