Candidate Forum on Energy & the Environment: MA Governor’s Race

How we respond to climate change will define the future of Massachusetts. Our next governor will be faced with crucial decisions about how we build a carbon-neutral, green, equitable Commonwealth.

On Wednesday, April 27, 2022, the Environmental League of Massachusetts and WBUR held a forum with the candidates for governor, moderated by Radio Boston host Tiziana Dearing. The forum featured candidates Sonia Chang-Díaz, State Senator, MA 2nd Suffolk District, and Maura Healey, Massachusetts Attorney General. All major gubernatorial candidates were invited to participate.

The candidates discussed their plans for renewable energy, clean transportation, environmental justice, resilient communities, and more. The event was held at WBUR CitySpace (890 Commonwealth Ave., Boston, MA 02215) & streamed online.
