Subject: In support of a Sustainability Director position in the FY2023 budget
Dear Select Board and Advisory Committee members,
I support the funding of a Sustainability Director position in the FY2023 budget.
Members of Hingham Net Zero have developed a compelling business case that sets forth the need, justification, envisioned duties, financial/other benefits, and funding sources in support of the creation of a Sustainability Director position in the FY2023 budget.
The Sustainability Director position could not only be a key enabler in the work of the Climate Action
Planning Committee in developing the Climate Action Plan, it could also provide the centralized focus needed to access available grant funds which we are not yet seeking.
The Town’s Climate Action Planning Committee, Cleaner Greener Hingham Committee, and Energy Action Committee all voted to support creating this position and other Town entities are reviewing own messages of support as we speak.
We need to make sure the town is ready to move aggressively on climate action. Creating the Sustainability Director role in FY2023 is key to do so.
Thank you for your consideration,
