Due to a scheduling conflict with a few candidates the forum date has been changed from Thursday July 12th to Monday July 16th
Climate Change and Connecticut Governor Candidate Forum
As we have seen in the last few years, the governor of CT has a large influence on the climate policy of our state. They will appoint the head of the Dept. of Energy & Environmental Protection and Transportation , as well as several members of the GC3 (Governors Council on Climate Change) and can even submit legislation directly to craft policy. In fact the main climate bills to be passed in 2018 were initiated by Gov. Malloy. Well we get to choose a new governor this November.
Because of this, it is important that we find out what the candidates’ policies would be, pressure them to act on the accepted science and implement the radical solutions we need.
Join 350 CT, John Dankowski(moderator) and several other organizations at a Climate Change and CT Candidates Forum on July 16th at Trinity College in Hartford.
