ROLLING MEADOWS – Today, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund announced its endorsement of Tammy Duckworth for the 8th Congressional District of Illinois.  LCV Action Fund works to elect candidates who will implement sound environmental policies.

“Tammy Duckworth has been a stalwart supporter of environmental issues in her campaign, and LCV Action Fund is proud to endorse her for the U.S. House of Representatives,” said LCV Action Fund President Gene Karpinski. “Having bravely served her country in Iraq, Tammy is a strong voice for energy security, and we look forward to working with her in Congress to reduce our dangerous dependence on oil and build a more secure, clean energy future.”

“The support of the League of Conservation Voters is an honor to me,” said Duckworth.  “The work that LCV does for the environment is imperative to our nation and our planet.  The links between environmental issues and public health, the long-lasting effects of toxics exposure on our Veterans, and the economic development risks of climate change and poor management of natural resources are topics I am familiar with and will highlight as a Member of Congress.  I look forward to a continued partnership with LCV as we all work  to protect our planet and environmental future.”

Tammy Duckworth is featured on LCV Action Fund’s GiveGreen website, http://www.givegreen.com/, the only bundling website devoted exclusively to raising money for environmental champions and candidates.
