Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced today its endorsement of Beth Doglio for election to the U.S. House from Washington’s 10th Congressional District.

“The stakes for fighting the climate crisis have never been higher, and we’ve never needed leaders like Beth Doglio in Congress more,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “With decades of experience advocating for environmental protections and passing ambitious climate solutions, there is no doubt that Doglio is a champion Washington families can always depend on. We are thrilled to endorse her.”

“Washington State is at the forefront of fighting the climate crisis, in no small part because of Representative Beth Doglio’s leadership” said Shannon Murphy, Chief Campaign Officer for Washington Conservation Voters. “She has shown she can deliver, just last year helping ensure Washington had the strongest, most equitable 100% clean electricity law in the nation. With over 30 years of experience fighting for climate action, we are proud to continue to work  with her in Congress to fight for our state and our communities’ health.”

“I am honored to have earned the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund,” said Beth Doglio. “We must act on the climate crisis now: for our people, for our planet, for the health of our communities, and for our future. The stakes are too high to settle for the status quo – we need environmental champions who will lead bold action in Congress.”

Washington’s 10th District has a history of environmental Congressional leadership. Voters strongly support elected officials who work to keep our air and water clean. It is exciting to see many candidates in this race have clean air and water platforms and strong environmental voting records.

Beth Doglio has served in the Washington House of Representatives and is one of the state’s foremost leaders on climate and the environment in the legislature. She was the first Executive Director of Washington Conservation Voters in 1991, served on the staff of Audubon Washington and has worked at Climate Solutions since 2007. Doglio also served as the director of the regional Power Past Coal campaign, which stopped seven coal export proposals. As a state legislator, she sponsored and helped pass landmark Clean Building legislation setting a first in the nation efficiency standard for existing commercial buildings. Doglio negotiated the Toxics Reduction Act, and this past session passed a bill closing the exemption on PFAS in fire fighting foam in use at airports and oil refineries. Doglio earned a 100% lifetime score on Washington Conservation Voters’ Scorecard.
