Our Campaign For A Greener East Hampton
With pristine natural areas, rich agriculture, and a vast array of rare and endangered plants and animals, East Hampton residents know that their Town has a lot to protect - and a lot to lose. In recent years, increased population has spurred new development, adding pressure on the area's land, water and wildlife. And as a coastal community, East Hampton stands vulnerable to the extreme weather conditions becoming increasingly more commonplace, as Hurricane Irene most recently demonstrated.
NYLCVEF has joined forces with the East Hampton Environmental Coalition (EHEC) to raise awareness of these issues in the upcoming Town Board and Supervisor elections.
Elected officials and candidates for office need to hear from residents about ensuring a sustainable future for East Hampton - especially when it comes to critical local issues such as coastal preservation planning, aquifers and drinking water, surface water and estuarine health, open space preservation, light and noise pollution, environmental planning and code enforcement, and solid and water waste management.
Our goal is to educate East Hampton voters about these issues and the role that their elected officials play, and to engage them to vote for the candidate they feel has the best plan.
Here's what YOU can do:
1. Sign our petition to tell your elected officials and the candidates that these issues are important to you
2. Find out who's running for Town Board and Supervisor and where they stand on these issues.
3. Read our literature, which was mailed to 5,000 households in East Hampton to help voters make the connection between the environment and their local elected officials.
4. Vote on November 8th! - click here to find your polling place
