Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Representative Quentin Williams (D) to represent the 100th House District of the CT General Assembly, including the town of Middletown.
For the past two years, Representative Williams has earned a perfect 100% rating on CTLCV’s Environmental Scorecard.
This was a phenomenal year for climate action. These wins would not be possible without dedicated lawmakers like Quentin Williams. He worked hard to pass the CT Clean Air Act—groundbreaking legislation that will reduce pollution from transportation, curb diesel emissions from trucks and buses, invest in clean electric school buses, and provide funds to reduce traffic congestion. He is fully committed to a clean and healthy environment for his district and all communities across the state.
Representative Williams is Vice Chair of the Progressive Caucus and has been a leading voice for Environmental Justice. His leadership was essential to establishing more equitable solutions while modernizing Connecticut’s landmark recycling law, better known as the “Bottle Bill.”
As Chair of the Housing Committee, Representative Williams has been pushing to modernize our energy grid to cleaner, more affordable power and to increase solar paneling and energy-efficient heat pumps in new housing construction.
“Representative Quentin Williams is a leader and champion for issues important to his district and the state. His enthusiasm and hard work as a lawmaker were essential to major climate successes this year. We need him at the State Capitol to continue this work in 2023,” said CTLCV Executive Director Lori Brown.
