Environment New Jersey endorses re-election of Trenton Mayor Reed Gusciora
TRENTON, N.J. – Environment New Jersey announced Monday it is endorsing the re-election of Reed Gusciora to another term as the mayor of Trenton.
Mayor Gusciora has a strong record as an environmental leader for Trenton and the entire Garden State. As mayor, he has:
- Advocated for an electric car share and ride share program, including the installation of charging stations across the Capital City. This program is funded by grant money from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and is expected to go live in late fall.
- Supported initiatives to transition from dirty diesel electric school and transit buses to clean, electric models, leading to the award of five new electric buses to the Trenton school district, which have been delivered to local schools
- Championed and approved a municipal ban on single-use plastic bags before the state Legislature took action.
- Called on Trenton Water Works to expedite the replacement of lead service lines after alarming NJDEP test results.
“Mayor Gusciora is the ‘green’ champion Trenton needs, and frankly, it would be great if all of our local and state officials emulated both his ambition and action when it comes to environmental issues,” said Environment New Jersey State Director Doug O’Malley. “In his first term, Mayor Gusciora validated the faith that so many voters concerned about the environment had in him. He deserves another term to build on his many accomplishments that are improving the health and quality of life for Trentonians.”
Before he became Trenton’s mayor, Gusciora was a New Jersey state legislator from 1996 through 2018. During that time, he rose to the rank of deputy majority leader, and chaired three state Assembly committees, including the Environment and Solid Waste Committee. Among his legislative achievements, he sponsored a “clean cars” bill and led the expansion of the state’s recycling law to include electronic waste.
