Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Representative Kerry Wood (D) to represent the 29th House District of the CT General Assembly including the towns of Newington, Rocky Hill, and Wethersfield.
For the past two years, Kerry Wood has earned a perfect 100% on our Environmental Scorecard.
This was a phenomenal year for climate action. These wins would not be possible without lawmakers like Kerry Wood, who worked hard to pass legislation crucial to reducing pollution from transportation and are committed to the environment.
Kerry Wood is a strong advocate for climate-smart agriculture. She started one of the state’s first organic farms and supports sustainable, local, and organic farming practices. She also supports renewable energy and fiercely opposes natural gas fracking waste and pipelines.
Last year, Representative Wood helped pass legislation to ban single-use plastic bags and to update our current recycling law known as the “ Bottle Bill”. As Co-Chair of the legislature’s Insurance Committee and an outspoken member of the Commerce Committee, she was part of a task force that successfully overhauled state laws to clean up polluted industrial sites under the Transfer Act.
Looking ahead, Representative Wood wants to see our state investing in more clean energy and improving air quality.
“Kerry Wood is an effective leader with strong values that connect good economic policy with good environmental policy. Her constituents need her back at the Capitol so she can continue to serve her district and the entire state of Connecticut”
