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 Liz Watson for Congress in Indiana’s 9th District.

“We are thrilled to endorse Liz Watson because we know she will be a champion for clean air and clean water for every Hoosier,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “She is committed to holding corporate polluters accountable and cleaning up the coal ash ponds that are putting communities at risk. She will be a valuable partner as we work to grow Indiana’s clean energy economy, protect our public lands, and ensure a healthy and prosperous future for our children.”

“I’m honored today to receive the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund,” said Liz Watson. “LCV works tirelessly to make a cleaner and better world for future generations to come. In Congress, I will fight for clean air and water protections while investing in new green energy jobs of the future. I’m thrilled to have LCV Action Fund’s help in the fight to clean house in Washington and elect people who will champion our environment.”

Liz Watson is a fifth-generation Hoosier who grew up in Bloomington, Indiana. She graduated from Carleton College and Georgetown Law School. Following law school, Watson went to work representing mothers who were being denied assistance because they couldn’t work without childcare. She also worked as the director of workplace justice at the National Women’s Law Center and as the Labor Policy Director for the Democratic Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives. In Congress, she will focus on ending Indiana’s coal ash crisis, investing in clean energy jobs, and enacting commonsense solutions to climate change.
