CANDIDATE FORUM ON THE ENVIRONMENT HOSTED BY NORTH COUNTRY CLIMATE REALITY AT SUNY ADIRONDACK

On Monday, April 30, 2018 from 5:00 -8:00 p.m. Dr. William Throop of Green Mountain College will serve as the moderator of a panel to encourage discussion of environmental issues and platforms of the current slate of Congressional candidates for CD-21. Hosted by North Country Climate Reality, the forum is meant to enlighten voters specifically to discussions around the scope of responsibility of elected representatives and how environmental factors, including climate change and acid rain, broadly affect the North Country and its residents.

Registration for the event is required at https://goo.gl/forms/3QdlqyuVVX8g2K4X2.  Attendees are encouraged to submit their environmental questions when registering for the event by way of the registration form.

All candidates who have filed with the FEC have been invited, including:  current Rep. Elise Stefanik, GOP challenger Russell Finley, and Democratic challengers Don Boyajian, Tedra Cobb, Emily Martz, David Mastrianni, Patrick Nelson, Dylan Ratigan, Katie Wilson and Green candidate Lynn Kahn.

The forum will be held in the Northwest Bay Room of Adirondack Hall on the campus of SUNY Adirondack, with plenty of free parking. A finger-food meet and greet will be held in the hall from 5:00 PM – 5:45 PM and the panel forum will commence at 6:00 PM, with round robin questioning of the assembled candidates.

North Country Climate Reality (NCCR) is a SUNY Plattsburgh at Queensbury initiative in partnership with Green Mountain College. NCCR hosts annual conferences, working groups and supports educational outreach and aims to make our North Country Region a model for effective local climate action.
