Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Rep. Gail Lavielle (R) to represent the 143rd House District. Lavielle strongly supports promoting electric vehicles in Connecticut, which would expand consumers’ choices and help reduce vehicle emissions. She has been a thoughtful leader within her party and across the aisle, helping to build consensus on the importance of protecting our open space and clean water and air.
“Rep. Lavielle knows that electric vehicles are key to both reducing air pollution and expanding access to a growing, in-demand technology here in Connecticut,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “She knows that clean energy is a vibrant part of our workforce, and key to bringing more innovative, high-paying jobs into our state while also helping us turn back the clock on climate change. We need leaders like Rep. Lavielle at the State Capitol who put people ahead of politics and do what’s right for our environment and our economy.”
To receive CTLCV’s endorsement, candidates must have completed the Survey on the Environment earlier this summer. All candidates running for legislative office were invited to complete the questionnaire, and CTLCV received over 100 responses. Endorsements are issued based on a candidate’s responses as well as additional information provided to CTLCV’s Endorsement Committee.
