BOSTON - The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund (ELM Action Fund) is proud to endorse State Representative Jay Livingstone in the Democratic Primary in the special election for the First Suffolk and Middlesex State Senate seat.  This district includes Winthrop and Revere, as well as part of the cities Boston and Cambridge.

 “While this race has several strong, progressive candidates, we are endorsing Jay Livingstone because of his a strong track record of leadership on environmental issues in the state legislature and his longstanding advocacy for public parks,” stated ELM Action Fund Political Director Joe O’Brien.

With critical issues of energy policy and environmental protection currently being debated in the legislature, the leadership of the ELM Action Fund believes it is important to add proven leaders like Jay Livingstone to the Senate Chamber. “Jay Livingstone 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,” stated ELM Action Fund President George Bachrach.  “Jay has been a strong partner in the House of Representatives and we are confident he will continue to serve as an environmental champion in the Senate.”

Jay Livingstone was elected as a State Representative in 2013, serving a district that includes part of Boston and Cambridge.
