In Local Fight Against Climate Change, State Senators Missing in Action

BARUCH COLLEGE — During last Tuesday evening’s “Climate Solutions Town Hall” held in the Student Center, two reserved seats remained empty.

Diane Savino and Jesse Hamilton, two Democrats of the New York State Senate — representing northern Staten Island and central Brooklyn, respectively — who recently failed to bring an environmental legislative bill to the floor for debate, were no-shows to the social and legislative action planning meeting.

The three panelists leading the discussion were not particularly enamored by the gesture.
