Green Vision & Future

Green Vision & Future For Hawthorne What Does This Mean?

 

As a Green, I am Purposing an Extensive & Bold Vision.

This is necessary for the Future We Deserve in Hawthorne.

 

  • I will pursue ending our current contract with B and B Disposal for the constant mishandling of the garbage and recycling in our town. Numerous complaints over the last year: broken receptacles, skipped streets, missed Wards, failing trucks, leaking trucks and unmarked trucks on our streets. This is not what our citizens want from our council and administration. I'm committed to working with the administration to find a better company and reaching out to other municipalities to see how they are handling their garbage and recycling removal.

 

  • Working to ensure safety and reduce speeding on major arteries of town. I will work with the administration, county and police. We may need to reduce the speed limits, install better signage around town and utilize our police to patrol more of these highly frequented roads. 

 

  • Identifying intersections that need better crosswalks and signage. Walking through and towards key areas of town, Goffle Brook Park or 8 Acres falls on us to manage better. There are definitely areas that need more attention.

 

  • Supporting the No Fossil Fuels pledge and even go further by starting we will take NO money from the Fossil Fuels industry, NO Corporate PAC donations and NO Developer ties. This ensures I'm beholden to you the voters of Hawthorne only!
