Adams for Mayor NYC: Making NYC a global leader in renewable energy

Politics

 

(NEW YORK) – As a City Councilmember in southern Brooklyn, I’ve seen the ways in which our low-lying, waterfront communities are adversely affected by the rising tides of climate change — especially in the outer boroughs. But I also know that our city’s coastal areas, while posing their own unique sets of challenges, are also the key to building a more resilient city.

One of the many reasons that I’m proud to support Eric Adams for Mayor is because he shares this vision, too. That’s why we’ve teamed up to help introduce Eric’s plan for transforming New York City into an international leader in wind power — and if you’re ready to join us, I hope you’ll support Eric’s campaign today!

New York needs a plan to harness the potential of the wind power industry, which would add thousands of good union jobs and hundreds of millions — potentially billions — to our local economy in the coming years. Furthermore, we can use this plan to invest in low-income communities of color, who have long borne the brunt of climate change, by connecting them with good, green industrial manufacturing jobs in the wind power industry.

There’s no reason why New York City shouldn’t be at the forefront of the renewable energy revolution. We have the resources and the talent — all that’s missing is the leadership to get it done. With forward-thinking and smart planning, the wind power industry can be a tailwind for our new economy as we emerge stronger from COVID-19. So if you’re ready to make New York City a global leader in renewable energy, donate today and help elect our next Mayor, Eric Adams!

Best,
Councilmember Justin Brannan
