Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Senator Julie Kushner (D) to represent the 24th Senate District including the towns of Bethel, Danbury, New Fairfield, and Sherman.
Julie Kushner has earned consistently high marks on CTLCV’s annual Environmental Scorecard, voting solidly in favor of environmental bills.
This was a phenomenal year for climate action. These wins would not be possible without lawmakers like Julie Kushner, who worked hard to pass legislation essential to reducing transportation pollution and are committed to protecting our environment.
As a member of the Environment Committee and Chair of the Labor & Public Employees Committee, Senator Kushner understands the connection between the economy and the environment. With this knowledge, she has promoted “green” jobs and worker standards in creating new solar energy projects in Connecticut.
“Senator Kushner has the right values to represent her district. She is well positioned to advance legislation that supports workers and creates good paying jobs in clean energy and transportation infrastructure,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director.
Senator Kushner is also concerned about the growing waste crisis in our state, and supports additional efforts to legislate restrictions on styrofoam and plastics.
“Julie Kushner is a progressive champion, a leader for environmental justice with values that connect economic equity to the environment. We need her at the State Capitol to continue this work,” said Brown.
To receive CTLCV’s endorsement, all candidates must have completed a Survey on the Environment. Endorsements are issued based on candidates’ responses, voting records in our Scorecard, and demonstrated leadership on specific issues.
