General Election on November 2 - Get out and Vote!!

Breathe Clean North Shore is proud to endorse TRACY VALLETTI for Peabody Municipal Light Commissioner.
“I am running because I’m concerned about the health and future of our city and am against the proposed fossil fuel Peaker Project. We need a commissioner that will lead with a vision aligned with the residents and city departments to maintain and improve our quality of life. The negative health and climate effects of a polluting plant in our city and our world is real. I can no longer stand by as these warnings are ignored. I will advocate for investments in renewable energy sources that keep our communities clean and affordable. I will engage the residents to come together as a community to create a future that is clean, affordable and accessible to all. And, while the peaker plant isn’t the only reason I’m running, it does perfectly encapsulate the biggest issue this city is facing in moving forward.”

In the meantime, we will be continuing our efforts to educate as many people as possible about this proposed dirty peaker, and push for an alternative, clean solution to this proposed dirty fossil fuel generator in Peabody.  We are also working to change the existing regulations that continue to promote dirty fossil fuel power plants over cleaner,  alternative, renewable power plants and energy storage solutions.
