January 3, 2024

Mayor Deaglan McEachern called on the city to address the challenges it faces head-on, particularly the housing crisis and the urgent threat of climate change.

He called the need to address the lack of affordable housing in Portsmouth ‘not just an economic imperative but a moral one, ensuring that the city of the open door remains a haven of hope and opportunity.’

The mayor added, ‘Equally pressing is the challenge of climate change, a reality that endangers the very fabric of our seaside community. Our mission is clear: Portsmouth will not only adapt but lead in environmental stewardship. We will implement a comprehensive climate action plan that champions sustainable practices, reduces our carbon footprint, and safeguards our environment for future generations.’
