Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Rep. Jonathan Steinberg (D) to represent the 136th House District. Steinberg has long been an environmental champion, and last session he shepherded through two landmark energy bills to reduce Connecticut’s carbon emissions and double our investment in clean energy.
“Rep. Steinberg knows that clean energy is key to both reversing the damage from climate change and creating new jobs in a growing field,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “He worked hard to make sure Connecticut doubled its investment in renewable energy, and is firmly committed to putting us on the path to 100% clean energy by 2050.”
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. Endorsements are issued based on a candidate’s responses as well as additional information provided to CTLCV’s Endorsement Committee.
