Hartford, CT – Today, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) endorsed Democrat Maria Horn for the Connecticut General Assembly. Horn is challenging Republican incumbent Brian Ohler to represent the 64th House District, and is deeply concerned about the threat of toxics and harmful invasive species to lakes and rivers in the district. She served on the Real Estate Advisory Board for the Nature Conservancy, and is a stanch supporter of water as a public trust.
“Maria knows that toxic tire mulch, flame retardants, and other pollutants are a serious threat to our public health,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director. “Unfortunately, we’ve seen commonsense bans on some of the worst of these toxics blocked without ever coming for a vote. That’s why we need leaders like Maria who are committed to standing up to polluters and special interests.”
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.
This endorsement is part of the third round of CTLCV's ongoing endorsement process. A full list of CTLCV’s endorsements can be found on our website.
