WASHINGTON, DC— The California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV) and the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, announced today their endorsement of Pete Aguilar for Congress (CA-31). Aguilar is committed to combating climate change and moving California and our nation towards the clean energy economy of the future.
“As Mayor, Pete Aguilar stands up for the citizens of Redlands while fighting to reduce carbon emissions and increasing energy efficiency, and he will bring this same leadership to Congress,” said LCV Action Fund President Gene Karpinski. “He will fight for commonsense policies that will protect our environment by tackling climate change head on, and reduce our reliance on dirty fossil fuels by investing in America’s clean energy economy.”
“Pete Aguilar has been a leader for the state of California and our environment as the Mayor of Redlands,” said Sarah Rose, CEO of the California League of Conservation Voters. “By adopting a sustainability plan and climate action plan, he has led the way to make our region and our country more energy efficient, and protected our environment for future generations.”
"I am deeply committed to sound environmental policies like increasing the use of renewable energy and addressing climate change. Our children’s future depends on it, and I am pleased to have the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund and the California League of Conservation Voters support our campaign for Congress," said Aguilar.
Aguilar is committed to combating climate change, because he has seen firsthand the impacts that climate disruption is having on California, including more intense heat waves, unprecedented droughts and more severe wildfires. As Mayor of Redlands, Aguilar has led the effort to adopt a sustainability plan that promotes energy efficiency, clean energy and conservation. In Congress, Aguilar will continue to tackle climate change and move America towards a clean energy economy, which will create good paying jobs in California and across the country.
