Candidates Environmental Debate at Earthplace

Join us for an evening with Westport's candidates for State Senate and Representative as they answer questions on a variety of environmental topics.

The debate will be moderated by the Julie Belaga, who co-founded the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters in the late 1990s. A Westporter, she has served in local and state positions, including as New England's EPA regional director and on the board of the Export-Import Bank, where she led efforts to increase financing for U.S. firms that export products and services that benefit the global environment. She also led, drafted, and implemented Connecticut's coastal management laws.

Mark your calendars for this great opportunity to learn about our most pressing environmental concerns before election day.
