Since his recent election in 2017, Bill Perkins has already made impressive environmental accomplishments. In the Council, he spearheaded the successful fight for The Childhood Lead Paint Poisoning Prevention Act of 2004, which protects children from the dangerous effects of lead in their homes. Prior to that, Perkins was a New York State Senator, where he was the leader against rats infesting our streets, subways, and homes, and developed a comprehensive plan to exterminate them. He has also been an advocate for clean water and efficient energy, combating Brownfield and Superfund sites and passing legislation to limit the sulfur content in home heating oil.
If re-elected, Perkins will build upon his record by continuing to combat pollution and pests, and promoting public transportation and renewable energy.
