NYLCV Backs Carolyn Maloney For Congress

A strong environmental record throughout her career in public service
NEW YORK - Aug. 21, 2014 - PRLog -- 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 Carolyn Maloney for New York’s 12th Congressional District.

With a lifetime rating of 95, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney is among the most pro-environment members of Congress as rated by the League of Conservation Voters’ National Environmental Scorecard. For more than 40 years, the Scorecard has been the nationally accepted yardstick used to rate members of Congress on environmental, public health and energy issues.

In the current session, Maloney joined the new Safe Climate Caucus to unite with her colleagues in focusing attention on how the climate affects congressional districts across the nation. She has advocated for strong federal investments in resiliency and reduction in pollutants to combat changing weather patterns. Within her district, Maloney has fought for the complete cleanup of Newtown Creek under the Environmental Protection Agency’s Superfund program.

If re-elected, Congresswoman Maloney has pledged to focus on critical issues such as preparing New York for a changing climate, transitioning our nation to clean-energy sources and protecting wilderness lands for future generations to enjoy.

“The environment has been a high priority for Carolyn Maloney throughout her career in public service,” said Jon Del Giorno, Chair of NYLCV’s New York City Chapter. “We are proud to endorse her for re-election, and we encourage voters who care about a cleaner, greener New York City to support Carolyn Maloney for Congress on Election Day.”

In response to the endorsement, Congresswoman Maloney said: “I am proud to have received the endorsement of the New York League of Conservation Voters. Environmental conservation is a top priority to me and I am honored to stand with New York's environmental leaders to combat climate change and protect our natural resources. Thank you for your support.”

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.
