Senate Hopeful Lieu Receives Endorsement of California League of Conservation Voters
2011-01-25 · By Editor
“Today, the California League of Conservation Voters is proud to endorse the Ted Lieu for the 28th Senate District,” said CLCV CEO Warner Chabot. “We are confident that he will represent the strong environmental values of the constituents of the district, as did the late Senator Jenny Oropeza.”
CLCV has previously endorsed Lieu and organized significant grassroots support for his original campaign for state Assembly in 2005. Lieu’s accomplishments as an Assemblyman include co-authoring the landmark climate and clean energy law AB 32 and working with then-Assembly member—now Natural Resources Secretary—John Laird on critical green building legislation.
As an Assemblymember, Lieu earned a 95% lifetime score on environmental legislation in CLCV’s annual California Environmental Scorecard.
“Whether it was his early and strong support for groundbreaking climate change legislation or his continued support for the protection and restoration of the Ballona wetlands, Ted Lieu has always been a champion for the environment,” said David Allgood, Southern California Director of CLCV. “On February 15, voters in Senate District 28 should cast their votes for Ted Lieu.”
Former Assemblymember Lieu currently represents more than half of the voters in SD 28. For three terms, Lieu has represented the 53rd Assembly District in the State Assembly, which includes the cities of El Segundo, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Torrance, Lomita, Marina Del Rey, and portions of the City of Los Angeles.
