I recently went through the Sustainable Saratoga candidate questionnaire and I was struck by John Sanford’s responses. Here is an example:
Question #2: What, if anything, would you propose to do locally to confront climate change?
I manage a lot of properties in Saratoga and the last few years have been more than normally cold and snowy. When you ask this question I am inclined to answer that I confront whatever I am personally challenged with.
I thought this was a rather odd response and I heard from a source that has been reliable in the past that Mr. Safford does not believe that global warming is an issue.
As people who follow this blog may have noted, Mr. Safford has not been shy about posting here. He also has run his campaign almost entirely on the theme of transparency. There is a certain irony because that was pretty much what Joanne Yepsen ran on two years ago. So I emailed him asking his position on global warming. When I did not hear from him, I emailed him again and as of today, he has still not responded.
It appears that I may have found a rather opaque spot in his campaign. From where I am sitting I cannot make out what his position is.
