“Eric Griego has demonstrated that he cares deeply about curbing harmful pollution and building a clean energy economy,” said Gene Karpinski, president of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund. “We’re proud to endorse Eric Griego for Congress because we know that he’ll fight for a cleaner, safer New Mexico by standing up to corporate polluters and making them pay their fair share. In Congress, Eric will be more than just another vote for clean energy policies; he'll be a champion for a clean energy future.”
Statement by Eric Griego, Democrat for New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District:
“LCV Action Fund’s endorsement recognizes my proven record as State Senator and Albuquerque City Councilor of supporting investments to create the clean energy jobs of tomorrow in the great State of New Mexico. As Congressman, I will continue to fight for bold investments to turn the U.S. into the world leader in clean energy and create manufacturing jobs.”
