Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) congratulates Christine Cohen (D-12; Branford, Durham, Guilford, Killingworth, Madison, North Branford) on her victory in the 12th State Senate District. CTLCV endorsed Cohen for this open seat because of her strong commitment to reducing our reliance on single-use plastics, protecting Long Island Sound, and preserving our precious open space.
“Some people talk about sustainability, people like Christine truly practice it,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “She impressed all of us at CTLCV when she talked about transitioning her business away from plastic, and her victory today proves Connecticut’s shoreline community is just as interested in keeping harmful plastics out of the Sound and the ecosystems they support.”
In addition to endorsing Cohen, CTLCV invested over $20,000 in digital advertisements and direct mail to highlight her commitment to the environment.
“Christine gave truly thoughtful, considerate answers to all of the questions on our Survey on the Environment,” said Brown. “From preserving our open space to investing in clean energy, it’s clear she cares about making sure we protect our environment for generations to come. We know voters on the shoreline are deeply passionate about the air we breathe, water we drink, and preserving Long Island Sound, so we worked hard to make sure they knew Christine shared their values.”
CTLCV’s digital ads for Cohen reached more than 660,000 devices, while over 14,000 households received our direct mail pieces.
Cohen was one of 36 candidates CTLCV endorsed in the 2018 elections. Live updates on the election—including an up-to-the-minute count of CTLCV’s victories--can be found on our website.
