Your Public Lands.
Learn why you need to vote YES on November 6th.
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.
Protect Your Public Lands.
Vote YES on Tuesday, November 6th.
