James Gennaro is seeking re-election to represent District 24 in the New York City Council. He serves as Chair of the Committee on Environmental Protection, Resiliency, and Waterfronts. He has authored a host of laws on climate change, including the most progressive greenhouse gas reduction law in the nation at the time of enactment. He hopes to pass an updated law on zero-emission city vehicles, continue working with NYCDEP Rainfall Ready Program, and protect the city against storm surge through the use of storm surge barriers.
