Climate crisis advocacy group backs Baranski

The Sunrise movement’s Morris County branch of young people seeking action on the climate crisis have endorsed Charlie Baranski for the Democratic nomination for Morris County Freeholder.

“We know first hand that Charlie is ready to fight for all of us in Morris County on the freeholder board,” the group said in a statement. “Charlie understands that climate change is affecting and will continue to affect every aspect of society. He is committed to bringing bold progressive change to our county and always puts people over profits.”

Baranski was one of the founders of the Morris County Sunrise hub.

He said Morris County is at the “epicenter of the climate crisis.”

“Our waters and natural resources are suffering, and warmer summers have poisoned Lake Hopatcong, driven up our flood and fire insurance costs, and made it more expensive just to live as we always have,” said Baranski.  “As we prepare for more extreme heat this summer, we need to vote for a genuine climate champion who can stand up for Morris County residents and resources against those who seek to develop or sell off our county parks, or discount the destructive effect the climate crisis has on our residents.”
