Defending Progressive Values
Now more than ever, we need a leader who’s not afraid to fight for progressive values. Tom has been outspoken in support of the rights of all people, no matter where they’re from, who they choose to love or how they choose to worship. He has implemented strong pro-environmental policies and programs at a time when the current federal Administration is heading in the opposite direction.
Our police have not and will not inquire regarding an individual’s immigration status, and Tom was proud to be consulted by New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman as he created guidance for local governments to respond to President Trump’s Executive Order on immigration.
Tom has also helped make White Plains a leader in sustainability through the installation of 20 electric vehicle charging stations, expanded recycling options, banning use of the dirtiest fuel oils, streamlining the solar permitting process, energy efficient upgrades at city buildings, LED streetlight replacement, and complete streets legislation. White Plains has also opened a new fabric recycling center and a new park at Bryant and Mamaroneck Avenue.
