ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP

★ In November 2019, I brought forward the amendment to accelerate our City's carbon neutrality goal to 2030

Ann Arbor declares climate emergency, sets 2030 carbon-neutral goal, MLive 11/4/19

In June 2020, City Council voted unanimously to approve the "A2Zero" carbon neutrality plan

Ann Arbor unanimously adopts ambitious roadmap to carbon-neutrality, MLive 6/2/20

★ I have consistently advocated for improved Federal intervention and clean-up of the Gelman Plume

"There is a limit to what we can accomplish under state law, and so federal law is much stronger about holding a responsible party responsible. Again, this whole prohibition zone idea is really limiting, whereas the EPA could actually seek a cleanup" - Jack Eaton, MLive 3/10/19

Ann Arbor may seek EPA intervention for Gelman plume cleanup

★ I routinely participate in Coalition for Action on Remediation of Dioxane (CARD) meetings to help find a solution to the spreading dioxane pollution.

★ ​I support the creation of the Treeline-Allen Creek Urban Trail because it will become an important pedestrian and bicycle link, a valuable open space and will encourage economic development.

★ PresidentFriends of Dicken Woods which has worked to remove invasive species, restore native species and improve the pollinator habitat.

 

★ Supporter of Parkland Preservation (Huron Hills Golf Course).

★ I have consistently supported protection of our parkland.

★ I support improving the current Depot Street Ann Arbor train station, and other transportation alternatives to single occupancy vehicles. I oppose repurposing our public parkland for a new train station (see video below)
