Poll reveals what Marylanders want the new governor to consider regarding food and climate before the election
The poll was a phone survey and the question on the table is: Should the government do more to solve problems and meet the needs of the people? The study showed that 69% of Marylanders believe the Governor should do more compared to 28% who feel otherwise. Local organizations held a forum today to inform voters of critical food and climate issues before considering the next Governor. In the forum, Lily Hawkins with Food and Water Action shares what they would like to see the new governor put into action.
“I think what we ultimately would like to see is the moratorium on new and expanding factory farms in Maryland, the root of the problem is we just have too much waste on the Eastern Shore and we need to move to something more sustainable,” says Lily Hawkins, Maryland Organizer for the Food and Water Action.
Officials say it’s important that the next governor takes into account the food and climate issues of the people. The Maryland gubernatorial election will take place on July 19th.
