When you go to the vote on November 6th, Vote YES on Question 2 and help save our public lands.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE STATE PARK OR BEACH TO VISIT?
- Is it swimming or strolling the beach at Hammonasset?
- Is it bird watching at Sherwood Island?
- Is it hiking through Algonquin State Forest? Or fishing in Beaver Brook State Park?
- Connecticut’s public lands have been a part of your family’s memories for generations.
- Your beaches, parks, forests and landmarks shouldn’t be sold, swapped or given away without your voice being heard.
- On November 6th, your YES vote will protect your public lands.
- Without this added protection, the Connecticut legislature is free to continue giving away your public lands without the public’s input.
- These backroom deals have to be stopped, and voting YES on November 6th will add the protections your public lands need and deserve.
- Your YES vote will require the Connecticut legislature to hold a public hearing and gain a 2/3rds majority vote before any valuable state-owned park, forest, wildlife management area, or farmland is sold, swapped, or given away.
- This means greater transparency for the public and added protections to ensure the beaches, forests and landmarks that define Connecticut remain a part of our public lands for generations to come.
- Connecticut can’t afford to give away public lands without public input.
