Young people across the world are uniting over one common cause- our environment. They're begging their leaders to take action when it comes to combating climate change- and the Medford City Council is listening. With dysfunction surrounding our environmental policies at the federal level, taking action locally has never been more important.
As your City Councilor I have worked hard to be sure that we are doing our part to adopt best practices to promote a healthy and clean environment.
Below are a just a few examples of the what we have been able to accomplish this past term.
