Letters to the Editor: Election 2018: Support for James Skoufis

September 17, 2018



The environment plays a serious role in our daily lives and for businesses here in the Hudson Valley. From threats to our drinking water, the impact of flooding on our local farms and homes and businesses, and the increase in extreme weather from an increasingly unstable climate – our communities have seen it all recently.

That is why we need leaders who take protecting our environment, natural resources, and open spaces seriously. It is ESPECIALLY why we need collaborative leaders who believe in science-based solutions. And why I am voting for James Skoufis for State Senate.

James Skoufis recently received a 100% on the annual Environmental Advocates of NY legislative scorecard for his voting record on environmental issues in the State Assembly. His State Senate candidacy has already been endorsed by the New York League of Conservation Voters who has backed both Republicans and Democrats in other State Senate races.

The alternative is his opponent who has received thousands of dollars from deniers of the reality we are all experiencing -- extreme heat, extreme flooding, and poor management of our aquifers.

As a professional who works to protect our regional environment, I'm voting for James Skoufis for State Senate because he has an actual record on the environment, like fighting to remove toxic PCBs from the Hudson River and to protect our cherished open spaces. And I’m voting for James Skoufis because he has a vision for smart investment – green technologies of the future that will create quality local jobs. Join me in voting Skoufis for Senate!

Carla Castillo
Resident, Town of Cornwall
