Monthly Saugerties Climate Smart Task Force Meeting
Our meetings are always open to the public. This meeting will be conducted via Zoom video conference. Please use the link below to download the zoom client to your computer, tablet, or phone.

How to connect your audio, when joining via computer:
After you join the meeting zoom will ask you how you want to connect via audio.

If you join the meeting via the zoom app, then you will get prompted to use either “Computer audio” or “phone call”. If you can connect to the audio via your computer that is best. If you can’t use computer audio and opt for “phone call”, then zoom displays instructions on what number to call and displays your “participant ID”.

Candidates for New 19th District to Give Views on Climate and Energy Policy
Already challenged by the state’s newly redrawn electoral districts, many New Yorkers going to the polls on Tuesday, August 23, must choose between candidates about whom they know very little. A coalition of nonpartisan organizations from across the new 19th Congressional District (which stretches from Columbia County in the east to Tompkins in the west) are working to address that problem by providing a virtual candidate forum on Friday, August 12, 7-8 pm.

Democratic candidates Jamie Cheney and Josh Riley and Republican Marc Molinaro, who are seeking to represent New York’s new 19th district in Congress, have been invited to share their views specifically on issues related to the climate and energy. Rather than debating with one another, the participants will take turns stating their particular concerns and proposals for Congressional action.

Initiated by local chapters of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, the forum is cosponsored by environmental organizations active in the 11 counties comprising the new NY19, including Scenic Hudson, Sustainable Hudson Valley, Partners for Climate Action Hudson Valley, Sustainable Finger Lakes, Climate Reality of Tompkins County, Leon Chandler Chapter of Trout Unlimited, Mothers Out Front, and Tompkins County Environmental Management Council.
