August 22, 2016 - Candidate for State Representative Dylan Fernandes earned the endorsement of the country’s premier environmentalist organization and the Massachusetts scientist and engineer union. Fernandes is seeking the Barnstable, Dukes, and Nantucket seat which is home to the world’s leading marine science institutions.
Environmental stewardship and promoting funding for local scientific organizations have long been tenants of Fernandes’s campaign since he announced.
“Our local economy is dependent on a healthy environment and in the age of climate change, we need to do everything we can to promote clean energy and combat global warming,” said Fernandes.
Woods Hole is home to the country’s leading marine science organizations which have suffered from cutbacks in Federal funding. If elected, Fernandes will be committed to fighting for state funding for our scientific organizations which provide vital jobs to the region.
