A little about the Green in '17 Campaign
The goal of Green in ’17 is to make the environment a defining issue next year’s New Jersey governor’s race.
New Jersey has the most powerful governor in the country with expansive veto powers and responsibility to shape powerful agencies that control the quality of our drinking water, how much land is preserved as open space and the quality of the air we breathe through leadership appointments. Without a strong environmental leader in the White House, it is imperative that New Jersey once again takes a leadership role on key environmental issues. That’s why Green in ’17 campaign is so important: We educate and engage citizens on environmental policies and brief candidates on the critical issues voters care most about:
1) Achieving 100% clean energy by 2050
2) Modernizing our public transportation
3) Demanding environmental justice
4) Preserving land and parks
5) Protecting our drinking water from source to tap
