WASHINGTON, DC-The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect candidates who will implement sound environmental policies, announced today its endorsement of Roy Cho for Congress (NJ-5). Cho will support commonsense policies that make America a leader in clean energy while working to protect our environment and natural resources for generations to come.
"Roy Cho recognizes that preserving our environment and growing our economy go hand-in-hand, which is why he will work to expand our clean energy economy," said LCV Action Fund President Gene Karpinski. "He will support commonsense approaches to protecting our natural resources and ensure that our air and water are clean."
"In Congress, Roy Cho will be a strong voice for the people of New Jersey and our environment," said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters. "He's prioritized reviving the much-needed Hudson River tunnel project that will increase transportation options, decrease air pollution and improve the quality of life for northern New Jersey residents. Cho is also dedicated to investing in green technologies and renewable energy that will enhance New Jersey's economy and natural landscapes, keeping our state a healthy and prosperous place for all New Jerseyans."
"For us to move forward, we must recognize the links that bind our economic and environmental futures," said Cho. "Environmental stewardship goes far beyond protecting our clean air and water, and includes meeting our needs for the strong mass transit systems and clean energy alternatives that will create and support good jobs. For too long, our region has had a representative who has failed to see the importance of these larger issues. I thank the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund for supporting my campaign to bring common sense leadership back to northern New Jersey."
Cho will support commonsense solutions that conserve our open spaces and safeguard the air we breathe and the water we drink. He will work to create jobs and prepare students for our green economy by supporting investments in clean energy research and development. Cho also supports the EPA's Clean Power Plan, which will protect public health, decrease our dependence on dirty fossil fuels and reduce our carbon emissions.
