does Jim stand on the environment?
As past Chairman of the Forest Preserves Operations Committee I
proposed, and passed, an initiative to make that District’s
fleet of vehicles a “Green Fleet” within 7 years (vehicles
in our fleet would only use alternative fuels that are environmentally
friendly). The District is now the first of its type in the nation
to move forward in this direction. In addition to grants to implement
the plan, the District has received national recognition for its
to bring this same initiative forward for the County fleet. A “Green
Fleet” will save money in operational costs in the future
from less engine wear and cheaper fuel. In addition, the reduction
of VOC’s in the environment is dramatic.
