Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Sen. Marilyn Moore (D-22) for the Connecticut General Assembly. Moore served as Co-Chair of the Environment Committee from 2015 – 2016, and remains a steadfast advocate for conservation and sustainability. She is committed to reducing Connecticut’s reliance on harmful single-use plastic bags, and has long been a champion for public health—especially for our children. On the Children’s Committee, she fought hard to ban dangerous chemicals, and CTLCV looks forward to continuing our work with her to combat toxic crumb rubber in playgrounds and carcinogenic flame retardants in children’s clothing.
“Sen. Moore knows our children’s health is too precious to gamble with,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “When it comes to keeping toxics out of our children’s playgrounds and clothes, CTLCV has no finer ally than Sen. Moore. She is also devoted to protecting the water we drink and the air we breathe, and we look forward to continuing our work alongside her in the next legislative session.”
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 nearly 120 responses. Endorsements are issued based on a candidate’s responses as well as additional information provided to CTLCV’s Endorsement Committee.
