Washington D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced today the endorsement of Marie Pérez for election to the U.S. House representing Washington’s 3rd Congressional District.
“Marie Pérez is a community leader and small business owner who will fight for bold climate action and clean energy independence so that all communities in Washington have a healthy environment,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “We know that Marie Perez will prioritize ourhealth and well-being over polluter profits and always prioritize clean energy, jobs, and justice for all communities. We are proud to endorse her campaign for Congress.”
“Marie Pérez will fight to support small businesses, lower costs, and invest in clean energy while putting the health of all communities in our Evergreen State first,” said Washington Conservation Voters Vice President of Campaigns Lennon Bronsema. “Communities in Washington deserve leaders in Congress who will listen to voters and deliver action on climate, jobs, and justice for all families and communities. We are glad to see LCV Action Fund endorse Marie Pérez for Congress and we look forward to continuing to work with her to protect Washington state’s clean water, clean air, and healthy environment.”
“I deeply appreciate this vote of confidence from the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund,” said Marie Gluesenkamp Perez. “As a resident of a rural community that depends on sustainable forestry, I’m committed to advancing clean energy — including adding electric charging infrastructure in rural communities like mine — and promoting renewable packaging like cardboard so we reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and cut back on the environmental harm caused by overuse of plastics.”
Marie Gluesenkamp Pérez is a community leader and owns an independent auto-repair shop with her husband that they opened with a loan from the Small Business Association in 2018. Pérez’s mother is a sixth generation Washingtonian and her father immigrated to the United States from Mexico. Pérez is currently an elected member of the Democratic National Committee, is on the executive committee of the Washington State Democratic Party, and has served on the Underwood Soil and Water Conservation District board of supervisors since 2018. Pérez is running for Congress to help us achieve clean energy independence, expand the availability of electric vehicles, and increase the use of renewable packaging. She is also focused on addressing microplastic pollution and studying the impacts they have on Washingtonians.
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 95 U.S. Senators and 462 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.
