Since taking office in 2012, Nassau District 11 Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton has been a champion for the environment.
Delia has worked towards better water quality, completing a sewer study along coastlines in her district and helping to secure 12 million dollars to help fix degrading sewers in Glen Cove. She also helped pass a bill that bans the use of snow-melt pellets made from fracking water. Delia is also an advocate of healthy and local foods and works closely with Grassroots, an environmental advocacy organization that operates a local farm and fresh food market in Port Washington.
If re-elected, Delia DeRiggi-Whitton will continue to support and initiate efforts to preserve Nassau’s environment.
