Food & Water Action, the political arm of the advocacy group Food & Water Watch, is endorsing Kate Triggiano in the Democratic primary for Red Bank Borough Council.
The group cited Triggiano’s involvement in a range of activist campaigns across the region, and her leadership on the Council. During her first term, Councilmember Triggiano successfully introduced and enacted a local law that puts Red Bank on a path to achieve 100% clean renewable energy by 2030. She also championed an ordinance to ban single use plastic bags in the borough.
Food & Water Action New Jersey State Director Matt Smith released the following statement:
“We have been proud to consider Kate a friend and an ally for years. It was bold of her to run for political office and win her seat on the Council. And she didn’t stop there. She has demonstrated not only her support for bold climate and clean energy solutions, but also the political savvy to get them enacted into law. She is the kind of young progressive leader we need in Red Bank, and everywhere else across the state.”
Food & Water Watch has been active in New Jersey for over a decade, with a regional office in New Brunswick.
