Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Representative David Michel (D) to represent the 146th House District of the CT General Assembly including the town of Stamford.
David Michel has consistently earned high scores on CTLCV’s Environmental Scorecard, but he is one of a handful of legislators who was featured as an “Environmental Champion” for his leadership on a variety of important bills during the recent legislative session.
This was a phenomenal year for climate action. These wins would not be possible without lawmakers like David Michel who worked hard to pass legislation crucial to reducing pollution from transportation and who are committed to the environment.
David Michel serves on the Environmental Committee and is House Democratic Chair for the Animal Advocacy Caucus. His top priorities are Environmental Justice, Climate Change, and Biodiversity Protection.
Representative Michel has also facilitated important efforts in his district of Stamford. Over the past five years, he has collaborated with the city managers, elected officials, and state agencies to advocate for the construction of a barrier to prevent trash from spilling into the Long Island Sound from the city’s transfer station.
Looking forward to 2023, Representative Michel plans to collaborate with companies to pilot cleanups of contaminated sites throughout the state.
“Representative Michel is a major force for the environment. His energy and passion have often been the driving force behind many bills to ensure strongest possible policies are negotiated for our air, land, water, wildlife and people. We need him at the Capitol to continue to serve his district and the state.”
To receive CTLCV’s endorsement, all candidates must have completed a Survey on the Environment. Endorsements are issued based on a candidate’s responses, their voting record in our Scorecard, and their demonstrated leadership on specific issues.
