Our state is known for its quality of life and natural treasures, however not all Connecticut communities are able to invest in conservation. As governor, I would champion good environmental and conservation policy because it is good economic policy and the right thing to do for all our communities, both urban and rural.

In order to preserve and protect the iconic ecological and historical treasures that symbolize Connecticut and reflect its long heritage, we will pursue a five-part strategy that includes:

  • More firmly regulating clean air, water and soils.

  • Reducing waste and increasing recycling.

  • Supporting our rural economies, with their farming, forestry and special small town attributes; renewing our state’s commitment to protect the landscape; and encouraging and maintaining historic preservation efforts.

  • Reinvesting in innovation at the state Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) to oversee and execute these goals.

  • Improving resiliency against rising sea levels.

Connecticut Values

Ned is running for Governor because we need to change Connecticut’s direction before we fall too far behind.
