The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund today endorsed Representative Mike Day, D-Stoneham, for reelection in the 31st Middlesex State House of Representatives district, a credit to his 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 leaders like Day to the House Chamber.
“Representative Day 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 Day has been an advocate for reducing waste and promoting recycling in the Commonwealth. He has also been a supporter of the development of the solar energy industry in Massachusetts.”
"I am appreciative of this endorsement, which reflects my commitment to pursuing legislation that promotes sound energy policy that not only protects our environment but actively improves our quality of life,” said Representative Day. “I look forward to discussing these goals during this campaign and to continuing this vital work in the next legislative session and thank the ELM Action Fund for their own commitment."
First elected to the House of Representatives in 2014, Day is up for reelection this year and is running against a Republican challenger in the general election on November 8th. For more information about his campaign, please visit his web page at www.electmikeday.com.
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 ELMAction 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 ELMAction 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.
