“I’m honored to have spearheaded the collaboration for this coastal cleanup event. It is our duty to be proactive and care for the world we live in. As a father to two young girls, I am concerned about the future of our environment for the generations ahead. It is very important to teach our children and educate the public about the importance of conservation and reducing our carbon footprint. Awareness and education is key and events like these shine light on environmental concerns and teach our community on how to be stewards of our environment.” – Vice Mayor Vince Lago
