The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund today endorsed State Senator Anne Gobi of Spencer for reelection in the Worcester, Hampden, Hampshire and Middlesex District, a credit to her work on behalf of the environment in the Legislature the last two years.
With critical issues of agricultural and energy policy to be addressed in the next legislative session, the leadership of the ELM Action Fund believes it is important to return proven and accomplished leaders like Gobi to the Senate Chamber.
“Senator Gobi 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. “She has been a strong supporter of agencies that protect our waterways, state parks and forests, and agricultural land. In addition, Senator Gobi has been a tireless advocate for the people of her district.”
“I appreciate the endorsement of ELM whose members extend throughout my Senate district,” stated Senator Gobi. “Working on policies that impact our environment is critically important to me and knowing that ELM shares those concerns is a benefit to our area.”
First elected to the State House of Representatives in 2001 and the State Senate in 2014, Senator Gobi is up for reelection this year and is facing a general election opponent. For more information about her campaign, please visit her web page at www.annegobi.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.
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.
