In January, 2007, County Executive Andrew Spano appointed me to serve on his recently announced Global Warming Task Force. I am also serving as Chair of the Government Sector section of the Task Force. Mr. Spano charged the 34 members of the Task Force with the task of drawing up action plans that could be implemented by all segments of the Westchester community (municipal governments, residents, businesses and institutions), to assist us in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the County.
The Task Force is working with various environmental organizations, County and local administrators, and also a consultant who has been retained to assist us in meeting the County Executive’s goal. Someone I met recently said, “Just tell me what to do”, which is exactly what we hope to accomplish on this Task Force.
