Washington D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced today the endorsement of Sarah Elfreth for election to the U.S. House of Representatives representing Maryland’s 3rd District.

“LCV Action Fund is excited to support Sarah Elfreth’s campaign for Congress to fight for all Marylanders, the Chesapeake Bay, and communities across the country,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President for Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “Sarah Elfreth has been a leader even before her service in the Maryland Senate to increase protections for clean air and water, land conservation, investments in clean energy and more resilient infrastructure, and for environmental justice in communities. LCV Action Fund looks forward to working with her to build a cleaner and more sustainable future for all.”

“From devastating flooding in historic Ellicott City and Annapolis to tornadoes in Anne Arundel County, residents of our district are living with the profoundly damaging consequences of climate change,” said Sarah Elfreth. “In the Maryland Senate, I have worked to make communities more resilient to the impacts of climate change and to improve the health of the Chesapeake Bay. On Capitol Hill, I will fight for climate justice, to speed our transition to clean energy, for a stronger democracy, and to protect the Bay and its watershed.”
