In this country, we need to view protecting our environment as an economic issue. Climate change threatens our health, our national security, our economy, and our future. Hurricane Sandy devastated our region, and we are still recovering from its effects. We must be working with federal authorities to not only rebuild but to effectively plan and prepare for the future to create a more resilient coastline.

We as a country also need to embrace the energy economy. I will work to invest in the good paying jobs that clean energy technology can bring to our region.

When I am elected it will be the first time in 38 years that Central Jersey will have a Congressman that believes climate change is real and we have to act now to protect our future.
