Shannon O'Brien on Environment

Former State Treasurer; Democratic Challenger MA Governor

Increase economic incentives for a healthy environment

Sound environmental protection is compatible with economic prosperity. I will develop incentives such as tax credits to attract environmental technology industries in our state, establish an energy efficiency goal for Massachusetts state government as well as a commitment to increase the amount of renewable energy it consumes, expand incentives to employ energy efficient practices, and create expanded opportunities for tourism at parks and beaches.

Protecting the environment means protecting public health. I will increase funding for municipal water and sewer infrastructure improvements and ensure that everyone, regardless of where they live or work, is free from the threat of toxic exposure.

Planning for growth will protect environment

As Governor, I will be guided by the following:
A clean environment is key to quality of life.
