Following the recent headlines about Roanoke County’s environmental programs and our membership in ICLEI, we should keep the conversation going. Not about the conspiracy theories embraced by a small group, but about the real opportunities we share as a community: to save energy and money, and to help keep our valley a healthy, beautiful and prosperous place to live.
As a community, we get to determine our own path forward and decide what kind of place we want to leave for our children. In my role as county supervisor, I have taken part in countless dialogues on these issues. When we talk about the environment and going green, I am always struck by how much common ground we share — even when we don’t realize it at first.
