Comparing Carney and Rubino on the Environment

In response to Mr. Noel Bishop’s endorsement of Devin Carney as per his letter to the editor on Oct. 29: Mr. Bishop fails to acknowledge that Carney is a member of the social gathering that denies local weather change, mistrusts science, and works to viciously undo laws that preserves and protects wildlife and conservation websites.

He cites a few of Carney’s recognitions within the environmental and land preservation house, however they don’t seem to be the results of a proactive agenda, nor one that’s notably knowledgeable by the most important menace to our good seaside/boating/fishing existence: Local weather change.

Carney’s opponent, Dave Rubino, however, is endorsed by The Sierra Membership. He additionally has pores and skin the sport—he has children who play in our waters, expertise our marine life, discover our marshes and forests. He’ll advocate for laws mandating local weather change schooling in public faculties (it’s proper now solely “inspired” however shouldn’t be a part of the required curriculum).

Being buddies with the boating group of Westbrook—and certain those that polluted our waters throughout a few maritime “Trump trains” this fall—hardly makes the author’s candidate an environmental champion. And talking of champions, what does Mr. Carney champion normally? The established order. And, maybe, a system that rewards sure folks for having a well known surname. Rubino presently works as a human rights lawyer—a champion for individuals who want a voice, somebody to face up and step up. With vigor and knowledge and a private funding within the points.

I urge voters within the 23rd District to assessment Rubino’s positions on points that we face as a group and to think about the unbelievable potentialities that would occur with a change of management.
