The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund today endorsed State Representative Josh Cutler (D-Duxbury) in the 6th Plymouth District race, 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 Cutler to the State House.
“We are proud to endorse Representative Cutler 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 Cutler has taken a stand that residents of the Commonwealth shouldn’t foot the bill for unnecessary gas pipelines. He envisions communities powered by safe, local, clean energy - like solar. Further, Cutler understands that access to transit is about equity, environment, and the economy - which is why he has pushed for better Commuter Rail options for the South Shore.
“I am pleased to have earned the endorsement of the Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund,” said Representative Cutler. “Environmental protection is a high priority for me and I am eager to continue to work with the Environmental League to advance policies that will improve public health, while growing our economy.”
Representative Cutler was first elected to the Legislature in 2013and has been a reliable supporter of environmental protection. Cutler recently earned a high score of 96% on the ELM Action Fund’s 2015-2016 Legislative Scorecard. Representative Cutler is facing a general election opponent in November.

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.
