The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund today endorsed Representative Dan Donahue for State House in the 16th Worcester District, a credit to his commitment to environmental issues and his passion for public service. With critical issues of energy policy and environmental protection to be addressed in the next legislative session, the leadership of the ELM Action Fund believes it is important to return environmental leaders like Dan Donahue to the State House.
“We are proud to endorse Dan because of his strong commitment to addressing environmental issues both in his district and across the Commonwealth,” said Joe O’Brien, ELM Action Fund Political Director. “Dan 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."
Representative Donahue was first elected to the legislature in 2013. Throughout his tenure in the legislature, he has been a strong supporter of the environment and the state’s efforts to invest in renewable energy projects here in Massachusetts that will create jobs and reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

The ELM Action Fund is a nonpartisan organization that helps pass laws that protect our environmental legacy, holds our elected officials accountable and works to build the political power of the environmental community.
Last year the ELM Action Fund and the national League of Conservation Voters launched a new affiliation and an aggressive plan to flex the environmental community’s policy muscle in Massachusetts. This fall the ELM Action Fund and the ELM Action Fund PAC have been working to educate and mobilize voters in key legislative races across the state.
