WASHINGTON DC - The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund today announced its endorsement of Dina Titus for election to the U.S. House of Representatives for the 1st District of Nevada. LCV Action Fund works to elect candidates who will implement sound environmental policies.
“We are proud to endorse Dina Titus for election to Nevada’s 1st District because she understands that promoting a clean energy economy is the best way to create thousands of jobs for Nevadans, make America energy independent, and curb carbon pollution,” said LCV Action Fund President Gene Karpinski. “Throughout her career in public office, Dina Titus has been a champion for clean energy legislation, and we look forward to working with her in Congress to build a secure, clean energy future.”
Titus has an impressive 96% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard, reflecting a strong record of championing clean energy and protecting our environment during her term in Congress. In 2009, Dina Titus voted to bring over 10,000 clean energy jobs to Nevada by supporting the American Clean Energy and Security Act, and as state Senate Minority Leader prior to her service in Congress, Dina Titus took the lead in developing solar and wind energy in Nevada. She has also supported common-sense clean energy investments in Nevada and throughout the country, including legislation in the U.S. House to make our schools more energy efficient, reduce harmful pollutants, and leave a healthier environment for generations to come.
“I am honored to receive an endorsement by the League of Conservation Voters,” said Titus. “Far too many people are still unemployed or underemployed in Nevada, and the development of clean and renewable energy can continue to create thousands of good jobs in our state. With Nevada’s amazing potential for solar, wind, and geothermal energy, we can put people back to work, revitalize our economy, and preserve the natural beauty I have always fought to protect.”
“From renewable energy to our natural treasures, Nevadans have always been able to count on Dina Titus to stand up for Nevada's environment,” said Scot Rutledge, Executive Director of the Nevada Conservation League.
