The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund today endorsed Jim Hawkins of Attleboro in the special election for the 2nd Bristol State Representative district on April 3rd, a credit to his commitment to the environment.
“Jim Hawkins knows how to create jobs for the 21st century,” stated ELM Action Fund Executive Director Joe O’Brien. “He knows that in cities like Attleboro and across the state we need to build a clean energy economy that will power us into the future. Jim will also work to make sure that taxpayers are not saddled with paying for unnecessary gas infrastructure like the Rehoboth Compressor station, which increases utilities’ profits but leave little benefit for the local community."
“Jim Hawkins understands the importance of our state investing in clean energy, sustainable transportation, and parks to help address climate change, create jobs, and build healthier communities,” said ELM Action Fund President Elizabeth Henry. “We need strong leaders like Jim in the State House of Representative who understand that we can have both a strong economy and a healthy environment.”
Jim Hawkins is a lifelong educator who has been active in many charitable and community efforts. Jim has also owned and managed small businesses and understands the important role these businesses play in the health of the local economy.
