Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced today its endorsement of Representative Pete Aguilar for re-election to the U.S. House from California’s 31st Congressional District.
“Representative Pete Aguilar is exactly the kind of climate champion we need to keep in Congress,” 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 clean energy and he prioritizes the health and safety of all communities.“
“From rolling back protections against offshore drilling that will harm our coastal communities, to weakening emission standards that will lead to more air pollution in places like the Inland Empire, the Trump Administration’s assault on our environment is only intensifying the climate crisis,” said Congressman Pete Aguilar. “I’m proud to have the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund and I will continue to be an unwavering ally in the fight against climate change and this administration’s dangerous policies.”
“As California continues to witness the creeping effects of the climate crisis, we need representatives who will advocate for our communities, public lands and push the agenda when it comes to creating clean energy jobs,” said Mike Young Political & Organizing Director of the California League of Conservation Voters. “Congressman Pete Aguilar is an environmental champion who prioritizes the health of Californians before Big Oil and we are proud to support his re-election.”
Pete Aguilar is a fourth generation San Bernardino County resident. Representative 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, as well as legislation to fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Representative Aguilar has earned an excellent 96 percent lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
