Scroll to the bottom to sign up to stay in touch as we move forward with these projects for Troy.
Here are some of the projects I plan to work on in the coming years, if you want to help out, let me know. Otherwise, find your own passion and interests and do your part to help your corner of our community. This city is a city built by the people that live here, let’s keep that up.
I am a long-term thinker, and as such, as much as I would have enjoyed the day to day work of a councilperson, Transition Troy offers a more focused framework for thinking long term about the triple crisis of Climate Change, Inequality, and Resource Scarcity, and acting locally and strategically to reduce our dependence on costly, destructive fossil fuels and build local resiliency. I plan to work with my friends throughout Troy’s sustainability community to help develop the plans and strategies to transition our energy future.
I was so happy to be part of the group that helped bring TVCOG to Troy, and have been thrilled to watch it grow over the past year as it moved into a new space, capable of housing the tremendous vision it represents. If Troy has a future tied to it’s history, of small manufacturing, business development, and cutting edge technology, this is the nexus of that future. I hope and plan to get re-engaged with that important work of helping to build the knowledge capital here in Troy to foster a diverse economic base.
During the campaign, we made the case that government information should be more easily accessible to the public through the internet. There is a national organization, Code for America, which has been leading the way on this work, along with the Sunlight Foundation, and I hope to help my friend Adam Siemiginowski, who is working to build a local chapter here in Troy.
