Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) congratulates Speaker Joe Aresimowicz (D-30; Berlin, Southington) on his victory in the 30th State House District. CTLCV endorsed Aresimowicz because he used his leadership position to protect the environment.
“Speaker Aresimowicz faced a close race, and we at CTLCV firmly believe his commitment to the environment helped secure his victory,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “We were proud to endorse the Speaker because he always appointed environmental champions to key roles and worked hard to protect the air we breathe, water we drink, and values we share. We shared our endorsement with our members, and made sure they knew it was because of Speaker Aresimowicz that Connecticut doubled its investments in clean energy and cut its carbon emissions in half. His victory today shows voters were listening and they care about his commitment. We look forward to working with the Speaker in the upcoming session.”
Aresimowicz was one of 36 candidates CTLCV endorsed in the 2018 elections. Full results of the election can be found on our website.
