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 Jason Crow for Congress in Colorado’s 6th District.
“Jason Crow is committed to addressing the serious environmental challenges we face head on,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “He knows how important public lands and the clean energy sector are to Colorado and will fight to make America a global leader again in reducing carbon pollution. We are proud to endorse his campaign because we need more leaders like him who will take bold action to combat climate change.”
“Mike Coffman has voted with Trump more than any other member of Colorado’s Congressional delegation,” said Conservation Colorado Acting Executive Director Maria Handley. “He has undermined our public lands, voted against air pollution safeguards, and stood by the federal government as it’s torn families apart at our borders. Colorado needs representatives in Washington who will protect our environment and way of life and we can count on Jason Crow to fight for our families and for Colorado values.”
“Every Coloradan has an obligation to preserve our state’s incredible natural environment for the next generation, and that’s a responsibility I take seriously,” said Jason Crow. “That’s why I’m proud to have LCV Action Fund’s endorsement. I’ll fight every day to ensure my kids – and every child in Colorado – have access to the same natural environment that makes me proud to call our state home.”
Jason Crow put himself through college by working construction jobs and enlisting in the National Guard. After 9/11, he served in the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division, completing three combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and earning a Bronze Star. Since leaving the Army in 2006, Crow has worked on a number of veterans’ issues including campaigning for the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and working on veterans’ issues for Senator Mark Udall and Governor John Hickenlooper. Crow is committed to taking action to stop climate change and will work to transition the country to 100% clean energy by 2050 if elected to Congress.
