Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Rep. Josh Elliot (D-88) for the Connecticut General Assembly. Elliott is a first-term legislator who quickly established himself as a leader in clean energy. He was quick to sign CTLCV’s Clean Energy for All pledge, which calls on lawmakers to move Connecticut to 100% clean energy by 2050 or sooner, and was a welcome ally at numerous climate change and renewable energy events.
“Rep. Elliott knows that clean energy is key to both fighting climate change and creating jobs here in Connecticut,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “Clean energy already supports 38,000 jobs in our state, and those numbers will only grow now that we have doubled our investment in renewables. We need more leaders like Rep. Elliott who understand the potential of clean energy to revitalize our economy and help us build a brighter future for Connecticut.”
