Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Matthew Blumenthal for the 147th House District. Throughout his campaign, Blumenthal has been a vocal supporter for increasing Connecticut’s clean energy investment to both combat climate change and create jobs.
“Matthew understands that clean energy is a vibrant, growing field here in Connecticut,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “More than 38,000 people work in renewable energy in our state, and Matthew is committed to making sure this field continues to grow. Wind, solar, and other clean energies are both key to cutting our emissions and strengthening our economy. We need more leaders like Matthew in the General Assembly who understand the importance of fighting climate change and creating jobs.”
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.
