    Mayor Lent Encourages Bremerton Residents

     to Take Conservation Pledge

    BREMERTON, WA [March 28, 2014]

    Mayor Patty Lent announced the City of Bremerton’s participation in the second National Mayor’s 

    Challenge, a program committed to improving the environment by using a national contest to engage 

    citizens’ conservation efforts in various cities.

    Residents can take the Water Pledge at www.mywaterpledge.com Participants in the winning cities 

    will be eligible to win prizes, including a Toyota Prius, showerheads, home watering kits, and more.

    Bremerton was a winner in the 2013 contest, ranking #1 in its nationwide category. In 2012, the first 

    year for this contest, Bremerton did very well and ranked #1 of cities in Washington State. We are 

    counting on the involvement of our residents to get us to first place once again.

    “Water is Bremerton’s remarkable resource. I encourage all Bremerton residents to pledge to learn 

    more about their water and energy use at home,” said Mayor Lent. “This challenge, which runs 

    through April, is an exciting opportunity to learn about water wise habits as we engage in a friendly 

    competition with other cities across the nation to create a more sustainable environment.”

    “The Mayor’s Challenge highlights the impact of each person’s environmental efforts,” said Water 

    Resources Manager Kathleen Cahall. “The city’s prize for participating in this contest is increased 

    awareness about the importance of our water resources.” 

    Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge win. Participants in the winning 

    cities will be eligible to win prizes – last year over 40 Bremerton entrants won a prize. Participants 

    will also see real results based on simple actions to save water and energy. The Mayor’s Challenge is 

    presented by the non-profit Wyland Foundation.
