League of Conservation Voters unveils endorsements

August 13, 2012
For 2012, the New York League of Conservation Voters has already endorsed dozens of candidates for the New York Assembly, state Senate, and U.S. House of Representatives, as well as one standing U.S. senator, Kirsten Gillibrand.

The organization is committed to environmentally sustainable economic growth. It bills itself as "the only statewide environmental organization in New York that fights for clean water, clean air, renewable energy and open space through political action," and describes itself as non-partisan.

Some of its endorsements are for relative newcomers to the state government: Cheryl Roberts, for Assembly District 107, and Patricia Fahy, for Assembly District 109. Fahy is involved in a crowded Democratic primary. "The environmental issues that confront the Legislature - from fully funding the Environmental Protection Fund to fostering green infrastructure and public transportation initiatives -- require not just experience and leadership, which I will bring to the state Assembly, but an understanding that protecting the environment helps build our economy," she said.

Cheryl Roberts is a standout environmental attorney. "I will fight hard to protect and preserve the environment, especially prime farmlands in the 107th Assembly District," she said in response to the NYLCV endorsement.
