Town of Brighton becomes part of the Climate Mayors Network

Brighton Supervisor William Moehle announced today that the Town of Brighton  is joining the Climate Mayors, a network of over 250 U.S. mayors and municipal leaders representing over 59 million Americans - working together to strengthen local efforts for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and supporting efforts for binding federal and global-level policy making.

Climate Mayors recently released an open letter to President Trump to oppose his actions thus far against climate action and Climate Mayors particularly opposes the decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement.  In January, thirty Climate Mayors issued an electric vehicle (EV) request for information (RFI) to show automakers and manufacturers that 114,000 of their cities’ cars and trucks could be electrified.

“Brighton has joined Climate Mayors to lead by example.  Climate change is real and we plan to take action to reduce our energy consumption and make our infrastructure more efficient,” stated Supervisor Moehle.  He continued, “Brighton is a New York State Climate Smart Community and sustainability will remain as one of our core values as a community”.
