Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Rep. Mary Mushinsky (D) to represent the 85th House District. Mushinsky was first elected to the Connecticut General Assembly in 1980, where she has been a tireless leader on land preservation and expanding our public parks and trails. As the representative in the 85th House District, Mushinsky holds a Lifetime Score of 97% in CTLCV’s Environmental Scorecard. She has also been active with the Wallingford Energy Conservation Commission and currently serves as Deputy Assistant Speaker of the House.
“Rep. Mushinsky is the definition of a leader and environmental champion,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “Over the years, she’s worked hard to preserve open space across the state, ensure more families have access to our trails and natural resources, and protect our clean water and air. She knows that a healthy environment is key to attracting more residents to Connecticut and building an equally healthy 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.
