The “Greening” of Athens — Myers has been active in 100% Athens, a group who successfully pushed the commission to formally adopt a resolution in favor of 100% clean energy by 2035. Her 2020 platform included transitioning the ACC government away from fossil fuels by 2035, and the rest of Athens by 2050.
Alternative Transportation — Myers’ 2020 platform included support for complete streets throughout Athens (including sidewalks and bike lanes) and an improved bus system, with the goal to reduce traffic fatalities to zero.
Myers also went on Tim Bryant’s radio show on WGAU on November 14, 2019:
