Our Political Committee sent out a questionnaire about key environmental issues for Newark to all the candidates in the election. We received responses back from 4 of them, Amy Roe, Rebecca Powers, Don DelCollo, and Matthew Vento. We appreciated the effort put in by each candidate to answer thoughtfully. All those who responded had positive aspects to their answers. We're encouraged by the degree of support for environmental protection and sustainable development. We felt that Amy Roe showed she had the deepest and broadest understanding of the issues facing Newark, and that she had earned our endorsement.
