ALBANY, NY: As noted at the last dinner, most of our environmental successes at the County level have depended on the sponsorship and support of the hardworking environmental county legislator, Doug Bullock. From fighting for a strong styrofoam and plastic bag ban, to championing waste management alternatives, to his current successful campaign to get the Albany Airport to put up reusable water bottle fill stations — and countless other environmental and civil rights campaigns — Doug has been in the trenches with us.
In a newly redistricted district, Doug Bullock is working to let his new constituents know about his environmental and human rights record. His district includes student communities and student housing at downtown SUNY Albany and the College of St. Rose. He notes that much of the community needs to register to vote, and we’ll be doing important footwork to register voters.
Doug’s supporters will meet at the Albany Public Library at 161 Washington St. on Sunday Oct 6th from 2-4 pm with the Bernie Sanders campaign; his supporters will go out to talk to the residents of his district and register them for the upcoming election in which Doug will be running on the Working Families Party line.
No matter who one supports for president or other office, I’ve been assured that does not matter; we can go register voters and give them good information about the candidates’ record on the environment. Please join us in registering students and others.
