Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Rep. Laura Devlin (R-134) for the Connecticut General Assembly. Devlin emerged as a leader on the environment during her first term in 2014, and has consistently made protecting our clean water, air, and land a priority. She helped champion the initiative to place a Constitutional Amendment to protect Connecticut’s open spaces on the ballot in November, and is actively working on measures to reduce the harmful effects of plastics on our environment.
“Rep. Devlin knows that preserving open space is both important for protecting treasured resources and attracting families and new residents to Connecticut,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “She is a true fighter for the environment, and knows the harm plastics can wreak on ecosystems in the Long Island Sound. Given today’s political climate, we need lawmakers like Rep. Devlin who are eager to work both within their party and across the aisle to protect our environment.”
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.
