Julie Tighe, president of the New York League of Conservation Voters, said, “With the intensifying climate crisis, we need to continue to aggressively build a clean energy grid and reduce pollution across all sectors of the economy. The New York League of Conservation Voters looks forward to working with our first female incoming governor Kathy Hochul, who has long been committed to the environment and we have been proud to work with.  We know that she will continue New York’s leadership on climate change, creating green, good-paying jobs, and protecting New York for future generations. As a woman, I’m personally excited that we are finally breaking the glass ceiling in New York’s highest office and look forward to a new era under her leadership.”
