All politics are local. My experiences in Baghdad led me to relentlessly pursue achieving energy independence, mitigating climate change, and protecting our natural resources. As individuals, communities, and as a city, we all have a stake in a more sustainable future. I am excited to soon bring forward for City Council adoption the Renewable Energy Committee's local energy policy. In addition to being a framework for the government of the City of Portsmouth, the policy will also be for residents, businesses, and Pease to all become part of a Net Zero Energy Community.
I look forward to continuing to champion issues residents bring to my attention, offer forward thinking individual initiatives, and work with the other City Councilors to keep Portsmouth vibrant.
