Bob Stefanowski Named to the LCV Victory Fund’s Dirty Dozen: Among Worst Environmental Candidates in the Nation
Hartford, CT — Today, The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) announced that Bob Stefanowski has been named to the LCV Victory Fund’s list of the worst candidates in the nation for our environment at the state and local level. One of just 12 candidates in the nation to receive the dishonor, Bob Stefanowski is the only Connecticut candidate to make the infamous list for 2022.
According to the League, Connecticut’s progress on environmental policies hangs in the balance. “A Stefanowski administration would force us into four years of defensive advocacy against environmental rollbacks and fighting new gas expansion,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV's Executive Director.
Our current Administration has wisely focused on making major investments in clean transportation and reducing pollution to improve our air quality, protect clean water, and preserve open space for the benefit of all. Stefanowski would prefer to spend our state’s surplus on tax breaks for businesses instead of investing in clean infrastructure.
Under a Stefanowski regime, Connecticut’s regional approach to many climate issues could be jeopardized, including offshore wind, clean transportation, and renewable energy. In 2018, Stafanowki was the only major gubernatorial candidate to skip CTLCV’s widely publicized debate on climate.
“Stefanowski is a fundamental threat to the future of Connecticut’senvironment,” said Brown. “Voters have the opportunity to reject Bob Stefanowski as a poor choice to lead our state towards a sustainable economy that values our environment,” said Brown.
