Our endorsement decision includes a review of the candidates’ environmental platforms and answers to questions, which were delivered at our candidates’ forum on Sept. 28.

We highly value Mr. Holmes’ dedication to the protection of the natural resources for Suffolk, and we are confident that he will safeguard the quality of the land and waters of Suffolk.
