Red Hook's Robert McKeon spearheaded the town's $3.5 million bond act of farmland preservation in 2003. Last year he successfully pushed for state legislation so the town could vote on a Community Preservation Fund. He's now helping voters understand the huge, community-wide benefits of the CPF and advising communities statewide on safeguarding open space.

“Knowing people overwhelmingly recognize the importance of preserving our agriculture and other natural resources inspires me. We can lead the way for New York, investing in a future that we can both rely on and be proud of.”
