NYLCVEF and Partners Release East Hampton Green Guide
September 29, 2017
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, on behalf of the East Hampton Environmental Coalition is pleased to present the East Hampton Green Guide as a resource for all candidates running for town office in 2017.
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.

Primary Election Day is tomorrow! This year, voters in NYC will have the opportunity to participate in ranked-choice voting. We recently held a webinar on the system, which will be used for the first time in a major citywide election this Primary Day. The event discussed how to fill in your ballot, how your responses are used to elect the winners, how candidates are using the systems while campaigning, and why the system was enacted.
As part of our public awareness campaign on electric vehicles, Plug It In, NY, we released the fourth in our series of fact sheets. This one focuses on the costs, incentives, and funding opportunities associated with purchasing and owning an EV.
