CONNECTICUT LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS (CTLCV) ENDORSES TONY HWANG
The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) has endorsed Tony Hwang for re-election to the Connecticut State Senate. CTLCV is a bipartisan, statewide, nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting Connecticut’s environment.
Hwang, a supporter and recognized champion of the environmental movement, recently received a 91% out of 100 grade on the CTLCV Environmental Scorecard, the highest of any Connecticut Senator and was amongst the first candidates to receive the support and endorsement of CTLCV.
Hwang was appreciative of this endorsement, “I have worked hard to advance policies that encourage investment in renewable energy, protect open space and keep our air and water free of pollutants, and I am proud of Connecticut’s role in mitigating the effects of climate change and leading the way to our energy future. This endorsement is an affirmation of my environmental leadership and past accomplishments.”
The CTLCV also noted that there were a record number of over 100 candidates that sought the League’s endorsement. And because they do not endorse a candidate in every race, voters can be confident that those candidates who receive the endorsement are true environmental champions. Only fifteen legislators have been endorsed.
From the CTLCV website, “Every election cycle, CTLCV endorses candidates based on their positions and track record on the environment. By highlighting candidates who care about our values, we can help elect leaders who will make the right choices to protect Connecticut’s most valuable resources.”
“Connecticut deserves lawmakers who will fight for renewable energy, clean air and water, and open space,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “All of the candidates we endorsed today have either established themselves as true leaders in the legislators or made real commitments to be champions for the environment if elected.”
