Mayor James Continues to Lead on Climate Issues

Kansas City Mayor Sly James has been busy coordinating with other Mayors across the nation on the issue of Climate Change.

In February,  Mayor James signed on to the MNCAA (Mayors’ National Climate Action Agenda).  In his letter to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, and Mayor Annise Parker, James states “I agree with you that, as mayors, we have an obligation to lead nationally on the shared challenge of mitigating GHG emissions, as well as preparing our communities for the impact of climate change.”  James finishes the letter by stating “My staff and I look forward to working with you to continue the leadership U.S. cities are providing on the issue of climate change and collaborating to achieve meaningful action at the national and international level.”

Just last week, James responded to Mayor Ralph Becker‘s call that  mayors across the country do more to mitigate Climate Change.  In it, James states “I share you interest in working to combine related efforts in hopes of providing a strong, unified national voice by mayors in our work on the frontlines of climate change mitigation and response efforts in the U.S.”
