Environmental groups warm up
to Warren and Brown
BOSTON - The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund, the political arm of the environmental organization, endorsed Elizabeth Warren in the U.S. Senate race, saying the decision is a “clear choice between the future and the past.”
“Scott Brown is hopelessly locked in the past supporting big tax benefits for big oil, a fuel of the past,” said George Bachrach, the president of the ELM Action Fund, announcing the endorsement in front of the State House with about two dozen people Thursday.
The endorsement was the first for the ELM Action Fund, and a “rare moment” in the history of the 114-year-old environmental organization, Bachrach said. The ELM Action Fund does not plan on making any other endorsements this election season.
Brown’s campaign pointed out he also picked up an endorsement Thursday from an environmental organization - ConservAmerica, a national grassroots organization of conservation-minded Republicans.
“Senator Brown is a thoughtful, stewardship-minded problem solver who is able to rise above partisanship to safeguard our environment. This quality is too rare today, and for all of us who want clean air, clean water, open space and balanced, solutions-oriented policies, it is vital that we send Scott Brown back to Capitol Hill,” ConservAmerica President Rob Sisson said. “He will work in good faith with any of his fellow lawmakers, regardless of party, to advance mainstream solutions for energy security, pollution control, and the careful stewardship of our natural resources.”
