Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Rep. Gregg Haddad (D-54) for the Connecticut General Assembly. Haddad has been a strong champion for the environment throughout his four terms in the House. In his response to CTLCV’s Survey on the Environment, he indicated his support for 100% clean energy, ending our reliance on single-use plastic bags, and adopting the State Water Plan. He has also been a staunch opponent of proposed fracked natural gas pipelines.
“Rep. Haddad knows that clean water is a right, not a privilege,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “He is a firm advocate for water as a public trust, and is committed to making sure our State Water Plan is finally adopted. He knows that clean energy supports thousands of jobs in Connecticut, and that investing in renewables will grow this workforce even more. We look forward to continuing to work with Rep. Haddad for a healthy environment and brighter future for Connecticut.”
