George Logan has been named to the LCV Victory Fund’s “Dirty Dozen” list of the nation's worst anti-environment candidates running for Congress
George Logan’s anti-environment record has earned him a place on the infamous "Dirty Dozen" list for 2022. CTLCV agrees with this designation and believes that George Logan is a threat to the environmental progress we have achieved in our state. As a state senator, Logan successfully blocked protections for children exposed to toxic chemicals on school playgrounds. Logan also actively fought against protections for Connecticut’s water and delayed the adoption of our State Water Plan.
For these reasons, CTLCV strongly opposed Logan’s re-election to the state Senate in 2020, and he lost his seat to a CTLCV-endorsed candidate. We concur with LCV Victory Fund’s assessment of Logan as he seeks higher office, where he is already on the record opposing federal climate legislation.

LCV Victory Fund Adds Connecticut House Candidate George Logan (CT-05) to ‘Dirty Dozen’
Washington, D.C. – Today, LCV Victory Fund announced the final four additions to its 2022 House and Senate Dirty Dozen list of the worst anti-environmental and anti-democracy candidates.The list now includes CT’s District 5 candidate George Logan. LCV VF has launched new digital ads.

The new ad in Connecticut’s 5th District highlights the proven track record of Rep. Jahana Hayes, former National Teacher of the Year who is tackling climate change and lowering energy costs, protecting the right to choose, and fighting for common-sense gun laws. Hayes’ challenger and new Dirty Dozen member George Logan, on the other hand, opposes the Inflation Reduction Act and is a utility company executive whose parent company raised energy prices on Connecticut consumers this year.
“Down to the wire, we saved some of the absolute worst candidates for the environment and democracy for our final four additions to the 2022 federal Dirty Dozen list,” said Pete Maysmith, LCV SVP of Campaigns. “Logan is a utility company executive whose parent company, Eversource Energy, raised energy prices on Connecticut consumers while raking in record profits.” Logan was a lobbyist for the utility company, and then proceeded to support tax breaks for big businesses and energy companies as a CT state senator. Logan also opposes the Inflation Reduction Act.
