Not only can most of today’s prominent leaders in New Jersey’s environmental movement trace their individual careers and victories to Candy, but most of the collegial forums of environmental leaders have been launched or strengthened by Candy. Take the monthly environmental summit that Candy organized, or the Coalition on Affordable Housing and the Environment, or the Environmental Congress run by Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions (ANJEC). Candy has served as a connector long before Facebook, LinkedIn, or other virtual social networking forums burst on to the scene.
