New Jersey League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released the following statement regarding Assemblyman Chris Brown’s candidacy in the LD2 Senate race against Assemblyman Vince Mazzeo:
“While we haven’t made any decision regarding our involvement in this Senate race, today’s announcement ensures that no matter who wins in November, the environment will have another champion in the Senate,” said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters.
"In 2015, New Jersey LCV supported both Assemblyman Brown and Assemblyman Mazzeo in their reelection bids. “Supporting candidates from both parties has paid off. Thus far, in this legislative session, both have supported New Jersey’s environment many times, including standing up to the governor to protect open space funding and working to protect environmental settlements.”
“New Jersey LCV was established to help elect pro-environment candidates and we are proud to have supported both Assemblyman Brown and Mazzeo in the past. We will continue to closely monitor the election in LD2, as well as races throughout the state, to ensure that next legislature is the most environmentally friendly in history.”
New Jersey LCV serves as the leading political voice for the environment. We are a nonpartisan, statewide organization dedicated to holding elected officials accountable for all their actions that impact our precious natural resources. We are one of 36 statewide LCV organizations across the country, and have been engaged in New Jersey politics since 2010.
