Vermont Conservation Voters Group Endorses “Pro-Environment” Candidates

The political advocacy group Vermont Conservation Voters has endorsed a slate of 40 candidates in state House and Senate races, based on their voting record on environmental issues.

The nonprofit said it released an early round of endorsements before Vermont’s Aug. 26 primary and will issue a complete list of endorsements in September. The organization “serves as the non-partisan political voice of the state’s environmental community,” according to its website.

VCV backed 11 candidates for state Senate and 29 for the House, according to a news release. All are Democrats or Progressives.

“We want voters to know that these candidates – all of whom are in contested races this year – support Vermonters’ environmental values,” said Lauren Hierl, the group’s political director. “These are leaders who have consistently stood up for clean water, for Vermont’s working landscape and downtowns, for reducing exposure to toxic chemicals, and for strong action on climate change.”
