Stacey Abrams on Environment

 

 


Hurricane recovery is a 10-month process, not 10 days

Q: What about the impact of Hurricane Michael, particularly on southwest Georgia?

ABRAMS: I've gone through a hurricane. It's a devastating process. And it takes months for recovery to happen.

Q: What's your message to residents of the area? You could be elected governor in a couple weeks.

ABRAMS: Number one, I've been through this myself. I understand that it's not just the physical plant that's a problem. It's making sure that people have access to the resources they need. And often when the cameras turn off and when people go home and stop volunteering, that's when the real trouble starts. I will leverage the responsibility of the governor, the ability to connect with state and local officials and federal officials to make certain that resources don't just end when the memory of the storm passes for the average person. And I think that's what you need. Someone who's thinking about this not as a three-day or three-week return but really as a 10-month, 12-month recovery period.

Stay on top of environmental waste & clean-up

Stacey has worked to protect our natural resources and communities from hazardous waste that often has gone unchecked. She supported greater oversight of petroleum pipelines, sponsored legislation to ensure funds for hazardous waste clean-up actually went to that purpose, and to require landfills to alert the public in the event of a leak.
