I’m the only candidate in the Bennington-4 house race to win an early endorsement from the Vermont Conservation Voters for my stance on environmental and climate-change issues. This endorsement means the world to me … literally.
Founded in 1982, VCV works to elect environmentally-friendly candidates to public office, and then holds elected officials accountable for the decisions they make affecting our air, water, communities, land, and wildlife.
After each legislative biennium, VCV publishes an Environmental Scorecard to highlight Vermont state legislators’ voting records on issues that impact the environment. These scorecards help provide voters with a clear record of who is voting in support of environmental priorities … and who isn’t.
VCV’s scorecard is one of the single most effective tools available to determine the true extent to which a candidate for office is committed to “green” public policy. In recent years, VCV has scored votes on clean energy, water quality, toxic chemicals, endangered species, healthy forests and working lands, and more.
I’m grateful to the many Northshire residents and local and statewide organizations who are taking the lead on these vital issues.
