1.     What actions have you personally taken to support a greener, more sustainable climate?

  • Built an addition on our house using ICF.
  • Sold our boat and are now using a canoe.

2.     What opportunities for climate leadership at the municipal level (e.g. greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs)) would you champion in one or more of these areas: Buildings | Housing | Land use (sprawl) | Transportation | Other

Buildings: Support energy efficient buildings

Housing: Support tiny homes

Land use (sprawl): Support multi-residential housing

Transportation: Support hybrid vehicles

3.     A long-term problem requires a long-term solution. What is your 100-year plan? If elected, what would be your first action?
