(This is sixth in an ongoing series of posts on What’s It Going to Take?: A look at how the environmental community can regain the initiative and build the political will necessary to clean up the Chesapeake Bay.)
In this exclusive interview, Maryland state Sen. Paul Pinsky tells the Bay Action Plan that, “We shouldn’t be taking our cue from the Tea Party,” when it comes to cleaning the Chesapeake Bay. “The correct response to them is to ask, ‘What is the right thing to do?’ We shouldn’t allow them to shape the dialogue.”
“We have a Democratically controlled legislature, we have a Democratic governor,” Sen. Pinsky said. “To allow those people to slow any kind of efforts down is a tragic mistake.”
“We have to take an aggressive, offensive approach, and not just respond to these people. We shouldn’t be back on our heels. We should be moving forward.”
