Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Democrat Annie Hornish for the 7th Senate District. Hornish is challenging Republican incumbent John Kissel, and is passionate about preserving open space and passing a statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, which pose a significant threat to our waterways. Hornish previously served as a State Representative, where she established a bipartisan caucus to address animal welfare. She is committed to incentivizing investment in clean energy, especially solar, to grow jobs in her district and across Connecticut.
“Annie knows the threat plastics pose to our waterways and the delicate ecosystems they support,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “More importantly, she proved in the State House that she knows how to work with members of both parties to pass critical protections for animals and the environment. She has demonstrated a lifetime commitment to conservation, and we at CTLCV look forward to continuing our work with her in the State Senate.”
To receive CTLCV’s endorsement, candidates must have completed the Survey on the Environment earlier this summer. All candidates running for legislative office were invited to complete the questionnaire, and CTLCV received over 100 responses.
