In 2014, the NJLCV PAC engaged voters in Englewood Cliffs to educate them about the anti-environmental record of Gloria Oh, a councilwoman seeking re-election.
As a member of the municipal council, Oh voted to create a high-rise zone in Englewood Cliffs, was the only member of the council to vote against allowing residents to repeal the enactment of the high-rise zone, and supports LG's plan to build a high-rise corporate headquarters in the Palisades.
After NJLCV PAC generated awareness and interest in Oh's record on the environment, she told the Record that she did not support any additional high-rise development, a departure from her previous position.
Oh was re-elected to the municipal council.
"Clearly, the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters is willing and able to marshall our resources in defense of the environment," said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters. "While Oh was re-elected, she obviously recognized the need to moderate her earlier position on high-rise development, which we consider a victory. Elected officials across New Jersey should take notice. We intend to continue this type of electoral engagement in 2015 and beyond, holding elected officials accountable and making sure their constituents know when they turn their backs on the environment."
