Ep 09: Leading Sustainable Cities w/ Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst

what the FUD by Christopher Matos-Rogers

Episode notes

In this week’s episode, Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst shares the ways sustainability is implemented in the city. Just a few examples: championing energy efficiency in municipal buildings, testing a Tesla electric car as a police cruiser, to visionary concepts such as a micro-grid and battery storage. These initiatives deliver sustainability not only for the environment, but also financial sustainability for the citizens of Brookhaven.

Brookhaven’s strong leadership during the recent coronavirus pandemic has been applauded, and followed by others regionally. Could Brookhaven’s leadership on public health and sustainability, eventually lead us to say “As Brookhaven does, so does the State of Georgia?”
