The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund today endorsed Matt Patrick for State Representative in the 3rd Barnstable 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 elect environmental champions like Matt Patrick to the State House.
“We are proud to endorse Matt 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. “Matt 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."
Matt previously represented the 3rd Barnstable district from 2001 to 2011. During his tenure in office, Matt was an environmental champion and a leader on many important environmental issues on Beacon Hill.

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 State PAC have been working to educate and mobilize voters in key legislative races across the state.
