The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund today endorsed Representative Mary Keefe of Worcester for reelection in the 15th Worcester 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 to be addressed in the next legislative session, the leadership of the ELM Action Fund believes it is important to return proven environmental champions like Keefe to the House Chamber.
“Representative Keefe 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 Keefe has been an environmental champion in the House, leading the way to get gas leaks fixed and urging a transition away from fossil fuels and toward clean energy. She also helped support efforts to prevent Massachusetts ratepayers from footing the bill for unneeded gas pipeline infrastructure.”
First elected to the State House of Representatives in 2012, Representative Keefe is up for reelection this year and is facing a general election opponent. For more information about her campaign, please visit her Facebook web page at www.facebook.com/Mary.Keefe.Worcester.
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.
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.
