Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) congratulates Kerry Szeps Wood (D-29; Newington, Rocky Hill, Wethersfield) on her victory in the 29th State House District. CTLCV endorsed Wood because of her commitment to protecting our open space and her strong opposition to fracked natural gas waste or pipelines in Connecticut.
“Kerry’s victory today proves Connecticut voters care about electing leaders who will protect our environment and precious natural resources,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “She grew up on a farm and talked often about the impact of open space on our economy. CTLCV made sure our members knew her commitment to preserving our parks, farms, forests, and beaches, and they came out in droves to deliver her this victory. We look forward to working with her in the upcoming legislative session.”
Wood 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.
