To The Daily Sun,
I am student at Plymouth State University, my studies there have taught about the detrimental environmental and economic impacts that fossil fuel consumption has on our society.
As a community, we should demand that our elected local leaders take stronger stances when it comes to protecting our air and water. Kelly Ayotte has a lifetime rating of 35 perecent on voting for the environment from the League of Conservation Voters, which seems pretty abysmal to me. If I received a 35 on a test, I would be mortified.
Our state and our country needs leaders who will aid in the transfer of fossil fuel consumption to more sustainable alternatives. If we do not become extremely practiced in incentivizing a transition to a clean energy economy, we will miss out on a chance to create jobs, stimulate our local economy, and preserve our planet. That's why, when I cast my vote for the first time, I will cast it for Maggie Hassan.
