Environment

We have a right to clean air and water in our communities. Hennepin County has a responsibility to lead development projects that prioritize environmental health. I will use my voice on the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners to advocate for common-sense clean air and water solutions.

 

  • I will help move our board to divest from fossil fuels by pushing for the use of green technology in county-owned vehicles and increasing the number of electric buses.  

  • I will evaluate phasing out the Hennepin Energy Recovery Center (HERC), a garbage-burning facility in downtown Minneapolis.

  • I will push for Hennepin County to ban the use of plastics which overwhelmingly harm our environment.
