Matthew Slater is seeking election to an open seat in the State Assembly’s 94th district. As Yorktown Supervisor, Slater organized a Climate Smart Communities Task Force and received a bronze certification. To receive this designation, Slater led an LED streetlight conversion project and composed a comprehensive Climate-Resilient Hazard Mitigation Plan. Slater helped Yorktown become a leader in renewable energy by implementing a framework for large-scale solar and battery storage projects and partnered with Sustainable Westchester to launch a community solar campaign. These initiatives lead to Yorktown’s approved solar car canopy at IBM. Slater introduced the first hybrid vehicle to the Yorktown police department, a first step towards a transition to an electric vehicle fleet, and would continue to push for expanded electric vehicle use if elected to the Assembly.
