The California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV)—the non-partisan political arm of the environmental movement in California—today announced its endorsement of Julia Brownley for Congress in California’s 26th district, which encompasses most of Ventura County. CLCV cited Brownley’s strong environmental record and her courage to stand up to special interests as reasons for the endorsement. Based on her track record, Brownley received an impressive 99% lifetime score on CLCV’s Environmental Scorecard for her votes on priority environmental legislation while serving in the Assembly.
“CLCV is proud to endorse Julia Brownley to become California’s Congressional Representative for the new 26th district,” said CLCV Political Director, David Allgood. “Julia Brownley has a long track record of leadership on protecting the environment and the public’s health and will be a powerful advocate for the residents of Ventura County in Congress.”
“I’m honored to have the endorsement of the California League of Conservation Voters,” said Brownley. “As a member of Congress, I will continue to stand up to the special interests that threaten the quality of our air, water and coastline, and fight for a stronger national energy policy focused on conservation, alternative energy development, and green jobs.”
In Ventura and Oxnard, where Ventura County Supervisor Linda Parks is not as well known, Brownley will plaster Democratic and Independent voter’s mailboxes with this endorsement.
How will Parks respond, if she does not have the campaign cash from any organized party or PAC?
