William Colton is running for State Assembly, District 47

William Colton is running for re-election to the State Assembly in New York’s 47th district. Colton has been a strong environmentalist since college, championing a fight to replace Southwest Brooklyn’s harmful incinerator. Throughout his time as an Assemblymember, he has continued to advocate for environmental protection. He has fought to ban fracking, reduce waste, reach clean energy goals, increase electronic recycling, and more. He hopes to increase incentives for zero-emission vehicles and believes that it’s necessary to transition to electrified public transportation fleets. Colton strongly supports the development of clean energy, specifically off-shore wind. He also works to ensure the amount of waste going to landfills is reduced, and fights against single-use plastics. If re-elected, he will continue to advocate for clean energy, climate resilience, green jobs and workforce development, and clean water infrastructure.
