Environmental Protection

Anthony is a champion of our foothill communities and our quality of life. He brings to the 25th Senate District race a record of accomplishment unmatched by any other candidate in this race. Back in 2002, Anthony joined the chorus of activists endeavoring to protect Glendale’s Oakmont V from development, and he has continued to work with the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and local activists on the preservation of many important properties across the 25th District. As the National Park service is working on implementing a forest service management plan, it is imperative that we have a Senator representing the Angeles Crest Forrest and foothill communities who understands these issues. Anthony testified in Congress on behalf of the Rim of the Valley Corridor Plan and he was Mayor when the City of La Cañada embraced the Sierra Club’s preferred alternative management plan.

While the state evaluates the effectiveness of its chemical policy, air quality management, alternative energy, transportation and CEQA, Anthony is best suited to have those conversations. He cares deeply about the issue of climate change, and knows that California has been a leader in innovation and investment for our future. This is why he has been endorsed by the Sierra Club.
