Assemblywoman Sandy Galef hosts Dan Hendrick, Vice President of the NY League of Conservation Voters and Nanette Bourne, the Westchester Chapter chair of the League on her television program “Speak Out with Sandy Galef.” They discuss the far reaching agenda the League is proposing to the state for 2014, breaking it down into manageable bites and discussing how they hope to get the job done. Hendrick explains how intertwined the issues are with sustainability in the face of climate change acting as the umbrella that unites them all. The management of transportation, conservation of resources, sustainable energy, smart growth, public health, plus many more issues all call for action and they are all part of making economic growth sustainable. Bourne brings the priorities to Westchester showing how Yonkers and White Plains are creating a new kind of suburb where people are choosing to live in more concentrated communities as an alternative to suburban sprawl. She also explains the measures the League of Conservation Voters follows to arrive at its nonpartisan endorsements of candidates. “The League of Conservation Voters raises issues we all need to understand,” says Assemblywoman Galef. “I am grateful for the efforts they make to educate both public officials and the public at large.” Tune in to cable television on the following days and times to learn more.
