Q:

If you answered "Yes" to the above question, how will you protect communities?

Yes

Will you advocate for state agencies and the oil and gas industry to abide by the precautionary principle in order to protect Colorado’s air, water, and public health?

Yes

Q:

What are your specific plans to reduce the threat of climate change once you get into office?

A:

At the local level we can encourage public transportation, create HOV and bus lanes on city streets, increase and improve bike lanes, rebate residents who install solar panels, introduce city-wide recycle and compost programs.

Q:

What will you do to attract other environmentally friendly industries such as hemp, solar, wind, geothermal?

A:

We can make it known that our city is welcoming of environmentally friendly business through marketing. Creating a narrative that conveys our commitment to the environment and the community would be attractive to small to mid-size companies. We can encourage businesses to come to Englewood by offering short term tax incentives. Perhaps blighted areas can sold, rented and developed at discount rates.
