Protecting Our Environment
As District 47's representative, I will fight to protect our environment against corporate fossil fuel interests.
The climate crisis is upon us and all decisions made in Columbus need to be evaluated to determine if they are harmful or helpful to the environment. I will:
Promote an end to fossil fuel use as soon as possible.
Promote clean energy solutions and repeal anti-business wind set-back laws.
Mount an educational campaign about the need to reduce consumption of resources.
Abundant water is one of our area’s most precious natural resources and our lakes, and rivers deserve to be protected. We need them to survive and thrive. I will:
Advocate for a moratorium on any new CAFO’s (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations).
Lower the threshold for regulation from 1000 animal units to 500 units on existing CAFO’s.
Refuse to allow privatization and sale of the MICHINDOH aquifer water.
