I am running for this position because I truly care about making change, and know that I have the experience and enthusiasm to work with others here at Acadia to do so. I love it here and the community has done so much for me, and I want to give back in helping to create a more sustainable Acadia. My vision for Acadia involves strong environmental leadership, which we need and I know we can achieve together. As sustainability officer, I would build on past successes and achievements to continue making Acadia more sustainable and committed to environmentalism and social wellness in general. I have a few main focus areas, derived from my work on campus and in conversation with students over the past few years. However, I recognize that this is not an extensive list and that circumstances may change, and new issues may arise over the year too.
