Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect candidates who will support sound environmental policies, announced today its endorsement of Carolyn Long for Congress in Washington’s 3rd District.
“Carolyn Long has dedicated her life to preparing the next generation to help lead our country, and we are excited that she’s stepping up herself to run for Congress,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “She will fight for policies that address climate change while growing Washington’s clean energy economy, creating stronger and more prosperous communities. We are proud to endorse her campaign because we know she will stand up for clean air, clean water, public lands, and a healthy future for all Southwest Washington families.”
“I’m honored to have the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund, and I’ll be a staunch defender of Southwest Washington’s public lands in Congress,” said Carolyn Long. “I look forward to working with LCV to bring green jobs that pay a family wage to our district and protect the natural spaces that make Southwest Washington such a beautiful place to live and raise a family.”
Carolyn Long worked in her family’s produce store growing up and paid her way through college by working as a produce manager at Safeway. In 1995, she began working at Washington State University Vancouver where she is now a tenured professor teaching American institutions, public policy and law, and public civility. In Congress, she will prioritize the fight against climate change and growing Washington’s clean energy economy.
