Protecting our health & THE environment
This year, the Bronx was ranked as the least-healthy county in New York State for the eighth-straight year. Time and again, the Bronx has been failed by its elected officials. Randy is a champion for the environment. Having worked in the Obama Administration as Special Advisor in the Clean Energy Investment Center in the Department of Energy, Randy worked to facilitate public-private partnerships in advancing the cause of green energy. He will continue the work he started in the federal government and will work to improve the quality of life in the Bronx.
IF ELECTED, RANDY ABREU WILL...
Ensure low-income Bronxites access to affordable clean energy through the creation and expansion of micro-grids and efficiency programs;
Establish green energy initiatives that promote urban sustainable development throughout the Bronx;
Retrofit New York City school buses and apartment buildings with locally-manufactured Auxiliary Power Units (APUs), which will cut down on harmful greenhouse gas emissions that pollute our air and contribute to the our community’s asthma epidemic;
- Enforce existing mold removal laws to protect tenants from the harmful and toxic effects of mold exposure as well as cracking down on landlords that refuse to ensure safe living conditions for their tenants;
- Demand that NYCHA provide safe, mold-free housing to all public housing residents;
- Stand up to corporate polluters who create excess garbage in our streets.
