Our top priorities in the Capital Region include:
Regional Transit: The transportation sector needs a major upgrade by improving public transportation, increasing accessibility of ride-sharing services, and incorporation of self-driving vehicles and electric buses. We will advocate for better public transportation and better pedestrian accessibility.
Renewable Energy: We will work with municipal and county governments to create guidelines for renewable energy to help expedite future large-scale and distributed renewable energy projects in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Clean and Safe Water: To ensure clean and safe water, We will work with counties and local governments to make sure they comply with testing requirements and limits for contaminants in drinking water and invest in wastewater, drinking water, and sewage overflow infrastructure. We will also make sure the region obtains their fair share of funding for these projects.
