Since assuming office in 2014, Westchester District 7 Legislator Catherine Parker has taken a lead role in preserving the environment.
As Chair of the Committee on the Environment and Energy, Catherine was the main sponsor of legislation to make Westchester County a climate-smart community. She also sponsored legislation to prohibit the sale of children’s products containing dangerous chemicals and legislation to create a County Energy Director position. Parker also helped negotiate an agreement with Standard Amusements to invest at least $25 million in Playland, which includes improving the North Boardwalk, park colonnades, lights on Playland Parkway, and fire suppression systems.
If re-elected, Catherine Parker will continue to spearhead environmental efforts and protect Westchester County for all residents.
