I am humbled to receive the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters for Maryland State Delegate 9B. LCV is one of the most respected environmental advocacy groups in the state. As a local councilperson, I helped create sound environmental policies for Howard County including the addition of hybrid buses, green building requirements, incentives for installation of solar panels, preservation of hundreds of acres of open space and farm land. We added curbside composting and increased recycling and had a local climate action plan. Becoming a state delegate will allow me to apply this experience on the state level. Time is short, and environmental sustainability is not optional. It will be a priority of mine in the House of Delegates.
