Mayors and Local Leaders Gather on Climate Goals
Mayors from across New Jersey agree it is time they take a leadership role on climate change. Over 175 mayors, officials and leaders from municipalities large and small attended the sold-out NJ Mayor's Climate Summit on Saturday. At the event, the first twelve mayors formally pledged to work with Sustainable Jersey to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in their towns. Read the pledge here. First Lady Tammy Murphy made a surprise visit to impress upon the audience that the Administration will be a partner with local governments in reaching our collective climate goals.

Additional mayors are encouraged to sign the pledge and consult with Sustainable Jersey on strategies to get your town moving towards the Gold Star Standard in Energy. For more information, contact Nancy Quirk at 609-771-2902, firstname.lastname@example.org.
