We must take meaningful steps to fight climate change, which threatens Ventura County’s economic productivity, public health, and the environment. As a member of the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, I support strategic investments in clean, renewable, and sustainable energy to counterbalance the effects of climate change on our economy and in our communities. I am also a strong supporter of federal laws like the Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, National Environmental Policy Act, and the Endangered Species Act. Not only must we clean up contaminated sites that resulted from past mistakes, but we must also protect and preserve our environment and natural resources, and promote the conservation of wildlife and public lands for future generations to enjoy.
