NYLCV Endorses Pete Sikora For Assembly

Environmental experience plus a vision for a greener, cleaner Brooklyn

PRLog - Aug. 18, 2014 - NEW YORK -- NEW YORK --- The New York League of Conservation Voters, which works to make environmental sustainability a top political and policy priority in New York State, has announced its endorsement of Pete Sikora for the New York Assembly in District 52.

Pete Sikora has impressive credentials in community organizing and environmental advocacy that make him uniquely qualified to be the next Assembly Member from District 52. Through his work with the New York Public Interest Research Group and the Working Families Party, Sikora has extensive experience in public health and environmental justice issues.

If elected, Sikora has pledged to make clean energy and the transformation of New York's crumbling infrastructure high priorities in Albany. He also plans to harness the economic potential of energy-efficiency initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also creating much-needed jobs.

"Pete Sikora has what it takes to make the environment a high priority in Albany," said NYLCV President Marcia Bystryn. "He has a unique combination of experience, energy and vision that will help address many of the sustainability challenges facing the 52nd District. We are proud to endorse him and we encourage voters who care about a cleaner, greener Brooklyn to vote for Pete Sikora for Assembly."

"As an environmentalist, I'm particularly proud to receive the NYLCV endorsement.  If elected, I will take on climate change and income inequality by pushing hard for a statewide program of energy-efficiency requirements for buildings. A strong energy-efficiency program would create tens of thousands of good, sustainable jobs while substantially cutting carbon pollution and saving energy costs," said Pete Sikora, who as NYPIRG's Organizing Director led several campaigns for environmental justice, including spearheading the coalition that got the City Council to pass the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Act and helping to pressure ConEd into shutting down the most polluting power plant in New York City, the Hudson Avenue Power Station in Vinegar Hill.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary year, the New York League of Conservation Voters (http://www.nylcv.org/) (NYLCV) is the only statewide organization that uses the power of endorsements and a political action committee to elect environmental leaders.
