Washington, DC - The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect candidates who will implement sound environmental policies, today announced its endorsement of Ann McLane Kuster as the best candidate for election to the U.S. House of Representatives representing New Hampshire’s 2nd district.
“LCV Action Fund is proud to endorse Ann McLane Kuster for the U.S. House of Representatives because she understands that the policies needed to grow New Hampshire’s economy and keep America’s competitive edge are the same policies that will reduce our dependence on foreign oil and curb harmful carbon pollution,” said LCV Action Fund President Gene Karpinski. “Ann McLane Kuster will work in Congress to enact common-sense energy policies that create jobs in New Hampshire while ensuring that America leads the 21st century’s clean energy economy.”
Kuster supports comprehensive energy and climate legislation that will help create clean energy jobs, decrease our dependence on oil and curb harmful carbon pollution. She is committed to incentivizing clean energy and energy efficiency and will work to transition the U.S. to a clean energy economy. Kuster believes global warming must be addressed and that the U.S. must lead international efforts to combat this global challenge.*
“I’ve stood with New Hampshire’s environmental community my whole life and I am very proud that they are standing with me in my campaign to help change Washington,” said Kuster. “Instead of subsidies for the oil and gas companies, we need to be investing in the renewable energy technologies that will grow jobs here in New Hampshire and lessen our dependence on foreign oil.”
Kuster has a deep commitment to environmental protection and holds an undergraduate degree in environmental policy from Dartmouth College. She served on the New Hampshire advisory board for the Trust for Public Lands, has led successful local efforts to persuade lawmakers to ban the hazardous burning of toxic construction debris in New Hampshire and has helped save two local family farms from development.
