Opinion: Letter to the Editor: Supporting Mark Levine for Lieutenant Governor

The rising sea levels on the shore continue to pose a real threat to our community. We need effective leadership in Richmond that will tackle the threat of climate change head-on, and not continue to give lip service to our concerns. And that is why I am supporting Delegate Mark Levine for Lieutenant Governor. Mark has been a champion for creating policies to address recurrent flooding and has made strides in the House of Delegates to combat climate change on a larger scale.

Since his first day in office, Mark has fought for what we need. From working towards reaching zero carbon emissions by 2045 through the Virginia Clean Economy Act to introducing a carbon cap and trade program to comply with the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. These are the changes we need in the Lieutenant Governor’s office.

Mark will continue to be a voice for all Virginians. We need an advocate in this position to address climate change now, and Delegate Mark Levine will be the leader to address our concerns thus far. I hope you join me and others across Virginia in voting Mark Levine for Lieutenant Governor in the upcoming Democratic primary.
