Washington D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, and New York LCV announced their endorsements of Dan Goldman for election to the U.S. House of Representatives from New York’s 10th Congressional District.
“Dan Goldman is an experienced advocate for a healthy democracy and supports a just and rapid transition to our clean energy future,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President for Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “As the former lead counsel for House Democrats during the first impeachment hearing for Donald Trump, he understands the risks to our continued self-governance and has centered his campaign around protecting and strengthening our democracy and voting rights. LCV Action Fund is excited to endorse Goldman’s campaign because we know that he will always be a strong voice for an equitable democracy and bold climate action.”
“Dan Goldman is a fighter we need in Congress. He has shown that he is committed to working to pass climate policies that will be good for the environment and good for job creation and the economy,” said Julie Tighe, President of the New York League of Conservation Voters. “We know Dan will bring his extensive experience fighting for justice in the courtroom to bear in the halls of Congress as he fights to pass strong, practical climate legislation that will benefit all communities.”
“Climate change is an existential threat that requires a rapid transition and lasting commitment to a clean energy future and green economy,” said Dan Goldman. “I am proud to have earned the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund, and look forward to standing with them in the fight for a healthier planet and equitable climate policy.”
Dan Goldman is a formerAssistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. A graduate of Stanford Law School, he has a long history advocating for voting and civil rights. In law school, he wrote a law review article on how felon disenfranchisement laws are “the modern-day literacy test” and contributed to Michelle Alexander’s book The New Jim Crow, which addresses inequalities in the criminal justice system. After leaving the U.S. Attorney’s office in 2017, he became a legal analyst for NBC News and MSNBC and served as a fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice. Goldman then became a senior advisor and Director of Investigations for theU.S. House Intelligence Committee, where he served as lead counsel during the first impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump.
The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, the connected federal political action committee (PAC) of the League of Conservation Voters, works to elect leaders who stand up for a clean, healthy environment and to defeat anti-environment candidates who oppose climate action. Since the 1990 election cycle, LCVAF has helped elect and re-elect 90 U.S. Senators and 450 members of the U.S. House of Representatives. Over the last several years, our efforts have also helped elevate climate change and clean energy as critical issues in key elections.
