Letter: ‘We’re proud’ of the mayor’



Kudos to Mayor Brainard for his leadership on conservation, sustainability and climate. For years, the Mayor has implemented a wide range of energy efficiency measures that save our energy resources, reduce the city’s environmental impact, save tax dollars and improve the quality of life in Carmel; from roundabouts and hybrid city vehicles to LED street lights and energy efficient water and wastewater treatment plants. In addition to taking aggressive steps to reduce carbon emissions that drive climate change, local communities must act now to prepare for climate impacts that can no longer be avoided. We’re proud of the Mayor’s national leadership on the President’s Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience. Indiana cities and towns should take advantage of the online Climate Resilience Toolkit prepared from the task force recommendations. Regardless of party affiliation, we have a moral obligation to future generations to leave a legacy of clean air, clean water and a stable climate. We must manage the unavoidable, and avoid the unmanageable, and we hope more Indiana and United States legislators take Mayor Brainard’s lead.
