This Monday, actor and environmentalist Isabella Rossellini, County Executive Steve Bellone, Board Chair for the Suffolk County Water Authority, Citizens Campaign for the Environment, and local business owner Richard Remmer will join The Nature Conservancy, Students for Climate Action, Blue Points Brewery, and other local groups to demonstrate support for the Clean Water, Clean Air, and Green Jobs Bond Act (Proposition 1) and urge New York voters to vote ‘yes’ on November 8th.
Press conference to showcase support and persuade NY voters to vote ‘yes’ on the Clean Water, Clean Air, and Green Jobs Bond Act will take place at the Snapper Inn, 500 Shore Dr, Oakdale, NY 11769 on Monday, October 31st at 11:00 AM EST.
The Clean Water, Clean Air, and Green Jobs Bond Act (Bond Act) is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to protect clean drinking water, modernize infrastructure, and improve quality of life across the state. This ballot measure will help communities throughout New York make critical upgrades to water and sewer lines, replace lead pipes, and maintain water treatment plants to ensure that our drinking water is safe and clean. If approved by voters on the general election ballot on November 8, the Bond Act would support nearly 100,000 local, family-sustaining jobs across multiple sectors, from construction, to healthcare, to retail, and more.
