The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund today endorsed Kara Nyman for State Representative in the 5th Plymouth district, a credit to her commitment to environmental issues and her 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 elect environmental champions like Kara Nyman to the State House.
“We are proud to endorse Kara because of her strong commitment to addressing environmental issues both in her district and across the Commonwealth” said Joe O’Brien, ELM Action Fund Political Director. “Kara 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."
Kara has extensive experience in government and worked under former Senate President Therese Murray and current Senate President Stanley Rosenberg as an aide in the state senate business office. Her opponent in the general election, Republican State Rep. David DeCoste was named one of the ELM Action Fund's “Dirty Dozen” for his poor voting record on environmental issues. For more information about her campaign, please visit her web page at www.votenyman.com.
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 Political Action Committee have been working to educate and mobilize voters in key legislative races across the state.
