WASHINGTON, D.C.—The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld tonight congratulates Alma Adams on her victory in the North Carolina 12th District Democratic primary. LCV Action Fund endorsed Alma Adams for re-election to Congress because of her outstanding record of working to combat climate change, expand clean energy and protect public health.
“We congratulate Representative Alma Adams on her win in tonight’s primary, which shows that voters in Mecklenburg County want to continue to be represented by a pro-environment champion. Whether in the state legislature or the U.S. House, Adams has consistently supported growing the clean energy economy to create good-paying jobs and tackle the climate crisis, and fought to protect her constituents from pollution like the toxic coal ash spill in the Dan River. LCV Action Fund was proud to be an early supporter of her re-election efforts, and tonight was a huge step forward to making sure she can continue her efforts in Congress to address climate change, conserve our open spaces, and safeguard the air we breathe and the water we drink.”
