Robyn Sklar grows Long Island Greens
In an article in the Queens Journal, Theresa Juva reports that Sklar's campaign for Long Island City city council was an educational effort that is paying dividends today.
While crime and schools always rank high on the list of campaign platforms, Sklar was also promoting less popular ideas, like bike transportation and enhancing the borough’s greenways .
“If you are talking about green ideas and sustainable ideas, you are going to resonate with 15 percent of the community,” she said, adding that in just the last two years focus on green ideas has grown exponentially.
