In response to the endorsement, Calarco said: “I would like to thank the New York League of Conservation Voters for their support of my candidacy. I believe that environmental sustainability leads to economic viability, both of which are key when it comes to building the kind of strong communities where people want to live. I am committed to advocating policies in Suffolk County that support this kind of progress.”
