What is your top environmental concern and how would you address it?

James Valadez

City Council, District 3

Water and air quality as well as preserving and expanding our parkland and green spaces are the environmental issues I would focus on because I believe they would have ripple effects into other key areas like flood mitigation & our cities carbon footprint. I would advocate for the use of pervious materials for our sidewalks and bike paths as well as in and around other flood prone areas throughout our city. I would also strive to implement policy that insures the sources of our energy are in line with our cities values.
