We built a diverse and engaged coalition of over three hundred environmental organizations, unions and business groups that propelled this measure to success. Thanks to the work of this coalition, who handed out tens of thousands of palm cards, window signs and lawn signs, and enthusiastic New Yorkers, we have delivered the first environmental bond act in a generation. The coalition also funded a robust paid media operation that educated voters on both sides of the aisle on the importance of voting yes on the Clean Water, Clean Air and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act. The passage of this measure will pay for projects that protect clean drinking water, tackle climate change and conserve natural resources while creating jobs and delivering environmental justice across New York State. Now we start the important work of implementation. Onward!
