“Rob Garagiola has been a strong ally of the Maryland League of Conservation Voters during his tenure as a state senator and LCV Action Fund is proud to endorse him for the U.S. House of Representatives,” said LCV Action Fund President Gene Karpinski. “A proven champion of the state’s clean energy initiatives, we look forward to working with Rob Garagiola to continue this good work as representative of Maryland’s sixth district.” 

“As part of the leadership in the Maryland State Senate, Rob has been a stalwart supporter of protecting our state’s natural resources and cracking down on polluters. He’s also taken the lead on creating green jobs and developing a renewable energy industry in Maryland,” stated Karla Raettig, the Executive Director of the Maryland League of Conservation Voters.

“I’ve dedicated my time in the Maryland State Senate to protecting our environment and creating green jobs in Maryland” said Garagiola. “This endorsement is proof that I’m the only candidate in both the primary and the general election who has the proven track record on the environment and clean energy. I will continue to be a strong advocate for these issues when elected Congress,” concluded Garagiola.
