Citing his strong conservation efforts and leadership on environmental issues, the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund (NWFAF) has endorsed U.S. Congressman Frank LoBiondo (NJ-02) for his reelection.
"South Jersey is home to some of the country's most treasured environmental areas and critical habitats. From wild and scenic rivers and three national wildlife refuges to the waters and beaches along our coastline, we are fortunate to live among some of the most important yet sensitive ecosystems -- areas that must be preserved and respected," said LoBiondo. "From the local nesting habitats of the piping plover and osprey to the unique relationship between horseshoe crabs and the red knot birds en route to the Arctic, I will continue to support efforts that protect South Jersey's pristine environment and welcome the endorsement of the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund."
"We especially appreciate your leadership in efforts to protect the Delaware River, promote offshore wind and renewable energy, fight for cleaner water and beaches, and to protect and conserve wildlife and public lands including the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge," wrote Andy Buchsbaum, Interim Executive Director of NWFAF. "As a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, you have often stood up for the protection and restoration of America's Great Waters and we look forward to continuing to work with you in that space."
The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund is the political action committee of the National Wildlife Federation, that per the website: " advocates for wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts from all walks of life and political stripes to ensure they have a voice in the democratic process."
