POUND RIDGE, N.Y. – The New York League of Conservation Voters (NYLCV) has endorsed Pound Ridge Town Supervisor Dick Lyman for re-election.
The organization aims to make environmental sustainability a top political and policy priority across the state.
“Pound Ridge's future depends on its leaders’ ability to embrace innovation, create jobs and transition to a 21st century sustainable economy,” said NYLCV President Marcia Bystryn in a statement. “Others may talk about these goals, but Richard Lyman has actually achieved them.”
Lyman is a charter member of the Sub-Committee on Septic Systems under the Committee on the Environment and Energy, and has focused on projects that address issues with the county's stormwater.
Examples include using Flexi-Pave as part of the construction of a new walkway in Scotts Corner, and the construction of Sach's Park, which incorporates the use of Vortechnics Treatment units for stormwater management.
Lyman also released a statement.
“I am honored that the League has recognized my well documented and continued long history of actual accomplishment on issues effecting the environment and conservation. In my past 28 years (in local politics), I have strived to prudently protect and maintain the environmental resources of our town.”
Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 3.
