CTLCV endorses candidates for the state legislature every election cycle based on their positions and track record on the environment. Endorsed candidates are committed to protecting Connecticut's land, water, air, and wildlife, and to working for sustainable solutions to pressing state issues like transportation, energy, and waste management. By endorsing candidates who care about environmental values, the League is helping to elect people who will make meaningful decisions that affect the state's environment every day.
Candidate Survey on the Environment
In election years, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters surveys candidates for state office about their positions on pressing environmental issues. We consider candidate responses to our survey in our endorsement process.
Candidate surveys ask what role candidates will take, if elected, on a variety of environmental issues, and about their top environmental priority. Candidates' survey responses, leadership history, and previous Environmental Scorecard scores are taken into consideration in our endorsement analysis. Additionally, we may invite candidates for interviews. Those candidates' interviews also form part of the basis of our endorsement analysis.
Candidate responses are posted as we receive them regardless of endorsement decision.
Following every election cycle, CTLCV provides detailed information regarding which candidates won and lost, the impact of our endorsement on each race, and what the outcome means for the environment.
