Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Rep. Cristin McCarthy Vahey (D-133) for the Connecticut General Assembly. McCarthy Vahey has been a champion for clean energy and pollution reduction. She has led the effort to develop a responsible carbon pricing initiative in Connecticut and across the region, and has been a forceful advocate for solutions to end our reliance on harmful single-use plastic bags.
“Rep. McCarthy Vahey knows that polluters shouldn’t be able to poison our air and force the rest of us to pay for their mess,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “She has been a staunch advocate for sensible carbon pricing to hold polluters accountable for the damage they cause. We need more leaders like Rep. McCarthy Vahey who stand up for the people against special interests.”
