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 Representative Pete Aguilar for re-election in California’s 31st Congressional District.

“Representative Pete Aguilar is a champion for clean air and water,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “We are thrilled to endorse him for re-election because he is committed to continuing California’s leadership in building a clean energy future and reducing dangerous carbon pollution to ensure safer and healthier communities for all people in this country.”

“If we don’t stand up against the Trump Administration’s assault on environmental protections, the damage will be irreversible,” said Representative Pete Aguilar. “I’m proud to have the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund, and look forward to working with them to continue the fight to protect our environment.”

Representative Pete Aguilar has been a strong environmental ally since he was first elected to Congress in 2014. He has consistently voted against attacks on our bedrock environmental laws and has co-sponsored bills to protect clean water and strengthen environmental protections for communities affected by fracking. Representative Aguilar has earned an excellent 98 percent lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
