For clean green Groton elect these candidates
Groton Conservation Advocates, a non-profit organization committed to encouraging a clean, green Groton, is pleased to endorse the following candidates for Groton Town Council in the upcoming election: Patrice Granatosky, Conrad Heede, Rachael Franco, Aundre Bumgardner, and Portia Bordelon.
In a questionnaire mailed to all of the Republican and Democratic candidates, each of the above showed strong commitment to addressing the impacts of climate change in Groton, promoting solar on Groton public buildings, protecting trees and open space, eliminating single-use plastic bags and polystyrene cups that litter our waterways and town, working for a more energy efficient future, and protecting our drinking water.
Addressing all these issues will make Groton a more attractive place to live and will attract new residents to our town. We commend these candidates for their vision in understanding that our quality of life here in Groton depends on a commitment to protecting and enhancing our environment.
