“I support David Abramson for Yolo County Supervisor, District 4! He is bringing exactly what we need to the table — substantial, feasible, and detailed legislation and community collaboration to address the climate crisis — a local Green New Deal.
Abramson is focusing on the most complex issue of my generation and gives me hope that I will have a livable and breathable future. Although other candidates are focusing on important issues, Abramson’s platform focuses on modifying the economy in such a way that Yolo County will be more environmentally, economically and socially just.
Some may point fingers on the culprit for climate change, but we are all just victims of a faulty system. We need to focus on solutions and I believe with Abramson’s leadership, Yolo County will become a great example for others. Even though climate change is a global problem, it may only be addressed with local, tangible solutions! I study Environmental Policy Analysis and Planning at UC Davis and I am confident that the Green New Deal will advance the county’s economy while deliberately improving the well-being of the community.”
Costanza Gonzalo is one of the people here locally who has inspired me to get to work on a Local Green New Deal! She is a member of Sunrise Movement Davis, who are part of a nationwide network of hubs fighting for a National Green New Deal to overhaul our entire infrastructure and energy system and make a just transition to a beyond-sustainable future.
I see Costanza as one of the bright leaders of the future and I’m inspired by her hope and will to make change in our community and being a voice for clean water, clean air, and a healthy planet.
