Hartford, CT - On October 13, 2014, the bipartisan Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) named its second slate of endorsed candidates for election to the Connecticut General Assembly in the November 4, 2014 elections.
CTLCV endorses candidates for the state legislature every election cycle based on their positions and track record on the environment. Endorsed candidates must be 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.
To date, CTLCV has endorsed a bipartisan slate of 31 candidates, all of whom demonstrate strong and devout leadership on environmental issues.

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.
"Connecticut's economic and environmental quality of life have always depended on our natural resources. We are counting on our endorsed candidates to champion smart environmental policies that will protect these irreplaceable assets," said Brown.
CTLCV surveys candidates on their positions, records, and plans for protecting the environment. The League also interviews candidates as appropriate and reviews incumbents' voting records in its Annual Environmental Scorecard. CTLCV will only consider endorsing candidates who have responded to its annual Survey on the Environment.
