Rep. Ferguson Endorsed by Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund

The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund today endorsed Representative Kimberley Ferguson, R-Holden, for reelection in the First Worcester State Representative district, a credit to her work on behalf of the environment in the Legislature the last two years.

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 return proven environmental champions like Ferguson to the House Chamber. 

“Representative Ferguson 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,” said ELM Action Fund Political Director Joe O’Brien. “Representative Ferguson has called for the House to pass strong solar legislation. She has also worked to protect Massachusetts ratepayers from subsidizing unnecessary gas pipelines. On the local level, Representative Ferguson has supported efforts to improve the environment in her district.” 

"I truly appreciate an endorsement from ELM Action Fund and thank them for their steadfast dedication to environmental protection in Massachusetts,” said Representative Ferguson. “I look forward to continuing to work in partnership with my colleagues in the Legislature and ELM to advocate for environmental issues important to the First Worcester District and the Commonwealth." 

First elected to the State House of Representatives in 2010, Ferguson is up for reelection this year and is running unopposed.

The ELM Action Fund helps pass laws that protect our environmental legacy, holds our elected officials accountable and works to help build the political power of the environmental community.

This fall, the ELM Action Fund will be working to educate and mobilize voters in key legislative races across the state. To support this work, the ELM Action Fund has created two new entities to help elect candidates, the ELM Action Fund Independent Expenditure PAC and the ELM Action Fund State PAC.

Last fall, 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. The groups have backed pro-environment state lawmakers in special elections, begun rolling out its “dirty dozen” lawmakers with the lowest environmental ratings and continued its strong advocacy on key issues this legislative session.
