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

Kathie Tovo

City Council, District 9

Climate change is real, causing extreme weather and threatening our water supply. I have led or helped lead on efforts to: develop ambitious renewable energy goals, nearly triple our solar portfolio, require new buildings be ‘solar ready,’ develop a 100-year plan for meeting our water needs, support President Obama’s ‘Clean Power Plan,’ and more. I look forward to continuing this work.
