Washington D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced today the endorsement of Brittany Pettersen for election to the U.S. House of Representatives from Colorado’s 7th Congressional District.
“Brittany Pettersen has supported environmental and democracy protections unfailingly and helped lead on important climate, clean transportation and energy efficiency legislation in the state legislature,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “LCV Action Fund is proud to support her election for Congress because we know she will continue to fight for all Coloradans and deliver on climate, justice, jobs, and democracy.”
“Brittany Pettersen is a champion for our climate and communities with a perfect lifetime score on our annual conservation scorecard,” said Kelly Nordini, CEO of Conservation Colorado. “We’re thrilled that LCV Action Fund has endorsed her campaign for Congress because we know she is a champion for climate and environmental justice and we look forward to continuing to work together, because the future is truly worth the fight.”
“I am honored to have the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund. Climate change is the greatest threat we face and as a new mom, it’s what keeps me up at night,” said Brittany Pettersen. “We must enact bold legislation to mitigate the current impacts of climate change and protect against the worst consequences. I look forward to working alongside LCV to protect our environment, public lands, water, and our future, for my son Davis, and all Coloradans.”
Senator Brittany Pettersen has had a long career in the Colorado State Legislature, first representing Colorado House District 28 after the 2012 election, and then in 2018, she was elected to represent State Senate District 22. Since entering the state legislature, Pettersen has consistently supported climate action, clean energy and environmental protections, earning a perfect 100 percent lifetime score from Conservation Colorado. While much of her legislative efforts have focused on education, substance abuse and health care, Pettersen has sponsored legislation to create a comprehensive plan for the state for climate change impacts and resilience, to promote electric vehicles and electric scooters, and to promote energy efficiency for buildings to reduce emissions. In addition, she has introduced bills to protect election officials and to increase transparency in ballot initiatives for voters.
