NEW JERSEY LCV WELCOMES PATTY CRONHEIM AS CAMPAIGNS DIRECTOR
PRINCETON – New Jersey League of Conservation Voters (LCV) is happy to welcome Patty Cronheim to serve as their new Campaigns Director.
Prior to joining New Jersey LCV, Cronheim worked as the Outreach Coordinator at ReThink Energy NJ where she helped foster the transition to renewable energy to reduce the use of fossil fuels. She organized communities statewide to improve their health and safety by opposing fossil fuel projects, such as the PennEast Pipeline and the Northeast Supply Enhancement Project (NESE).
New Jersey LCV is the statewide political voice for the environment, advocating for environmental policy and holding elected officials accountable.
Through her position as Campaigns Director, Cronheim will be developing, overseeing, and leading New Jersey LCV and the New Jersey LCV Education Fund’s environmental campaign plans, including stormwater utility and clean energy campaigns. She will help bring together stakeholders to ensure an equitable transition to renewable energy that protects the health and safety of all New Jerseyans.
Cronheim’s community organizing and volunteer activities are numerous. She leads Hopewell Township Citizens Against the PennEast Pipeline, and serves on the Climate Advisory Committee for the NJ Sustainable Business Council, and works with the Mothers Out Front Health Impacts Advisory Committee. She also is a board member of The Watershed Institute.
Cronheim holds a BFA in Film and Television from NYU, and Master of Science from Columbia University in Nutrition and Applied Physiology.
“I am excited to join the dedicated team at New Jersey LCV who care about our environment and the people of New Jersey – especially overburdened and low income communities of color, said Patty Croheim, NJLCV Campaigns Director. “I look forward to working with them to elevate the voices of the vast majority of New Jersey citizens who know that we must act quickly and equitably to protect against the threatening reality of climate change.”
“I was thrilled when Patty said she wanted to join New Jersey LCV. She’s smart, diligent, and cares so much about the environment,” said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of New Jersey LCV. “Patty’s passion will go a long way to help us bring about a sustainable future for all the residents of New Jersey no matter their zip code.”
