Wendy Carrillo’s campaign for Assembly District 51 announced today that the California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV) has endorsed her candidacy for AD 51.
In endorsing Carrillo, CLCV Political Director James Johnson said: “Wendy has been a champion for environmental justice throughout her life, and has been a key ally in the fight against climate change. She is a true progressive, having stood on the frontlines with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in North Dakota against injustice and defending our right to clean air and water, a safer climate and a brighter future for all Californians. We are proud to endorse Wendy Carrillo for State Assembly and know she will be an environment leader in the Legislature.”
From fighting climate change, to improving air quality and advancing the cause of environmental justice, CLCV is dedicated to protecting and enhancing the environment and health of all California communities by electing environmental champions to the Legislature.
“I am honored to receive the support of the California League of Conservation Voters,” said Carrillo. “I believe climate change is the most critical existential threat humanity faces, and that environmental justice should be a top priority for AD 51’s next Assemblymember. I am looking forward to continuing to work with CLCV as we fight to ensure future generations inherit a planet that is healthier, safer and more vibrant than ever.”
With the General Election just over two weeks away, Carrillo has continued to rack up endorsements from civic, community and education leaders and is poised for victory on December 5th. CLCV joins Congressman Jimmy Gomez, labor leader and civil rights pioneer Dolores Huerta, and over half the Board of the LA Community College District Board of Trustees including Board President Sydney Kamlager in throwing their support behind Carrillo.
