Climate Priorities of Marin’s New Supervisors

Hear the two newest members of our Board of Supervisors discuss the opportunities and challenges they see in confronting the climate crisis and other environmental issues. They will cover countywide initiatives and cooperation, as well as the path to implementing the County’s own climate actions. Bring your ideas and questions for a lively conversation.


Mary Sackett was elected to the Board of Supervisors in June 2022, representing District 1 (San Rafael). She is committed to fighting climate change and addressing housing, homelessness, transportation, disaster preparedness, and equity. She serves on the Boards of MarinCAN, SMART, TAM, Marin Transit, and the Great Redwoods Trail Authority.

“We must make every effort to mitigate climate impacts, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, sequester carbon, promote and incentivize electrification, and reduce traffic congestion.” Mary says, “We also need to step up and create adequate, affordable housing for our workforce. With creative thinking, we can strike a balance to ensure we protect our environment and community, and welcome new affordable housing into our communities.”

Mary has lived in Marin for over twenty years, and was an aide to former Supervisor Damon Connolly.

Eric Lucan was elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2022 to represent District 5 (Novato). He is a member of the Climate Action Subcommittee and serves on the First 5 Children and Families Commission, Marin Open Space District, and Boards of SMART (Chair), TAM (Vice-Chair), and Marin Transit.

A longtime advocate of climate-conscious mobility, Eric was Chief Marketing Officer for Mike’s Bikes for eight years, has driven an EV since 2013, and helped secure a third SMART station in downtown Novato. He also helped Novato earn recognition as an inclusive, Age-Friendly Community, and as a Playful City, providing kids with the balanced and active play they need to thrive, especially children in low-income neighborhoods.

Eric is a Novato native who was elected to the Novato City Council in 2011 and served as Mayor in 2014, 2019 and 2022.
