Today the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund announced their endorsement of John Delaney in Maryland's Sixth Congressional District. The LCV Action Fund works to elect candidates who will implement sound environmental policy. In the Sixth District, Delaney faces twenty-year Republican incumbent Roscoe Bartlett.
"I'm honored to receive the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund," said Delaney. "We have an obligation to protect our natural world for future generations. However, I also know that strong environmental policy is strong economic policy. As a businessman I recognize that we need to make the right investments to succeed in the 21st century economy: investments in the advanced energy sector, investments in the health and safety of our communities, and investments in the protection of our critical natural resources. In Congress, I will work to take appropriate steps to both protect the natural world and encourage economic development."
"LCV Action Fund is proud to endorse John Delaney for election in Maryland's 6th Congressional District because he understands that a clean energy economy is the best way to reduce America's dangerous dependence on fossil fuels, protect the air we breathe and the water we drink, and create jobs for Maryland workers in one of the nation's most steadily growing industries," said LCV Action Fund president Gene Karpinski. "John Delaney is committed to standing up to the special interests who are trying to dismantle the EPA and weaken the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts, and we look forward to working with him to protect natural resources like the Chesapeake Bay for the generations to come."
