(Hartford, October 14th) The bipartisan Connecticut League of Conservation Voters today endorsed State Senator Toni Boucher (R-26th District) for re-election.
In endorsing Senator Boucher, CTLCV Executive Director Lori Brown, said “Connecticut’s economic and environmental quality of life have always depended on our natural resources. We are counting on our endorsed candidates to champion smart environmental policies that will protect these irreplaceable assets.”
Earlier this year, Senator Boucher was cited by the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters for a 100% perfect voting record on bills related to the environment. She has also been endorsed by the Sierra Club.
In response to the endorsement, Senator Boucher said, “I take great pride in receiving this endorsement from the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters. I am fully committed to the preservation of our state’s land, air and water resources and, accordingly, have championed and supported legislation for clean water acts, brownfield remediation, open space preservation and the Long Island Sound Protection Fund. I fought to reduce air pollution by upgrading our mass transit systems and encouraging use of electric vehicles, and I wrote legislation to establish a Greenway along the Route 7 and the Norwalk River.Connecticut’s natural environment is one of our state’s greatest equities, and we must preserve it now and for the future.”
Senator Boucher is Chief Deputy Senate Minority Leader, Ranking member for the General Assembly’s Transportation, Education and Higher Education Committees and member of the Revenue, Finance and Bonding Committee. Her district includes Bethel, New Canaan, Redding, Ridgefield, Weston, Westport and Wilton.
