“I’m proud to be the environmental candidate in this race, and I’m grateful for the support of the New York League of Conservation Voters,” said Mike Scala, Candidate for City Council, 32nd District (Queens). “As an attorney and advocate, I helped bring ferry service to the Rockaways, I’ve fought for the QueensRail, and I’ve rolled up my sleeves and pitched in to clean up our parks and neighborhoods. As Council Member, I’ll fight for the QueensRail and better ferry service, secure funding to clean up our parks and waterways, and lead the way on long-term resilience planning to protect our coastline and prevent anything like the devastation of Superstorm Sandy from happening again. When we protect our environment, we are also protecting our businesses, our homes, and our community.
