From the Environmental League of Massachusetts:
The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund today endorsed Natalie Higgins of Leominster who is running in the Democratic Primary for State Representative in the 4th Worcester District.
“We are endorsing Natalie Higgins because of her strong support of environmental issues, her impressive record of leadership in the community and her commitment to addressing the health needs of the Commonwealth’s citizens,” stated ELM Action Fund Political Director Joe O’Brien. “She 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.”
“As a homeowner and the daughter of small business owners, I see how rising energy costs hurt our community. At the same time, it can be difficult to understand all of the alternative clean energy options," said Natalie Higgins. "I am excited to work with the ELM Action Fund to bring information and resources to Leominster and the rest of the Commonwealth so that we can lead the fight against climate change and reduce energy costs at the same time."
Natalie Higgins is running in the Democratic Primary on Thursday, September 8th for the seat currently held by State Representative Dennis Rosa, who has announced his retirement. You can learn more about her campaign by visiting her Facebook page at www.facebook.com/NatalieforStateRep.
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.
