The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund today endorsed Representative Dave Rogers for State Representative in the 24th Middlesex 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 champions like Representative Rogers to the State House.
“We are proud to endorse Representative Dave Rogers 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. “He 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 Dave Rogers has been a leader in the legislature, enlisting his colleagues to join him in pushing for adequate funding for the state environmental protection agency whose responsibilities include issuing permits and crafting and enforcing environmental regulations to protect our land, air, and water.
“I am proud to receive the endorsement of the Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund and the recognition of my leadership on environmental issues that the endorsement signifies,” stated Representative Rogers. “It heartens me, as it should all of us who care deeply about combating climate change while creating high-paying green energy jobs, that we made significant progress on the transition to clean energy in this legislative session. But more remains to be done, across multiple fronts, and I look forward to partnering with ELM in the days ahead as together we fight for some of the most important issues of our time."
Representative Rogers was first elected to the Legislature in 2012and in his tenure has been a leader on environmental issues. He recently earned a perfect score of 100% on the ELM Action Fund’s 2015-2016 Legislative Scorecard. Representative Rogers is facing a general election opponent in November.
