Jun 5, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC—The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect candidates who will implement sound environmental policies, announced today its endorsement of Martha Robertson for Congress (NY-23). Robertson is a strong advocate for public health, and supports commonsense solutions that tackle climate change while investing in good quality jobs. 

“Martha Robertson works hard to improve the lives of New Yorkers by fighting to protect public health and preserve our environment for future generations,” said LCV Action Fund President Gene Karpinski. “She supports moving America towards a clean energy economy and implementing energy efficient technologies that will save consumers money, help combat climate change and create good paying jobs.” 

“I am thrilled to have the endorsement and support of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund, and their supporters across the 23rd District and all of New York State,” said Robertson. “As a long-time advocate for environmental sustainability and good quality jobs, I know that protecting our environment for future generations is a key to growing our economy. We can improve the lives of the working families of the Finger Lakes, Western New York and the Southern Tier, with smart investments that lead the way in job creation and safeguard our natural resources at the same time.”

As a county legislator, Robertson has worked for practical local policies such as smart growth, investments in public transit and recycling, and sustainable economic development. She believes technological innovation – based on cutting-edge research within the 23rd Congressional District – must be leveraged to create next-generation solutions to our climate crisis.

Robertson understands that we can and must protect our environment with smart conservation policies while growing our economy. She will also advocate for commonsense solutions that tackle climate disruption, reduce our reliance on dirty fossil fuels as well as create clean energy jobs in New York and across the country.
