Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Rep. Linda Orange (D-48) for the Connecticut General Assembly. Orange serves as Deputy Speaker of the House and Vice Chair of the Public Safety Committee. Throughout her time in the legislature, she has been a strong proponent for land conservation, and most recently helped lead the push to expand options for municipalities seeking to purchase dedicated open space
“Rep. Orange knows open space is critical to preserving important natural resources and attracting new residents to our state,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “She has always been a forward-thinker who fights to build a better, more sustainable future for Connecticut.”
