NYLCV Announces Ten New Endorsements Across New York for the 2024 Election

The League’s final slate of endorsements before the primary includes Tim Kennedy for U.S. Congress, three candidates for State Senate and six candidates for State Assembly across the state.

The New York League of Conservation Voters Gives Green is proud to announce their support for ten new candidates across the state, bringing their total list of bipartisan endorsements for the 2024 election to 114.

“As we face more and more extreme weather events and prepare for another summer of record-breaking heat, the environment and climate change are poised to be pivotal election issues in 2024,” said NYLCV President Julie Tighe. “We are thrilled to endorse this slate of candidates for elected office and we are confident they will be strong advocates for clean energy, green jobs, and a healthier future, and we urge voters to support them in their upcoming election.”

Last year was a big year for the environment at the ballot box. An overwhelming majority—nearly 90%—of the candidates NYLCV endorsed won in the general election, showing once again that New York State is trending in the right direction in its fight to protect the environment and address the climate crisis. NYLCV looks forward to carrying this momentum into the 2024 election and beyond.

With the final round of endorsements before the primary done, NYLCV Gives Green now turns its attention to making sure these candidates — along with previously endorsed environmental champions like Assemblymembers Emily Gallagher, Stefani Zinerman, Michael Benedetto, MaryJane Shimsky, and Didi Barrett, as well as Larinda Hooks, Johanna Carmona, Micah Lasher, Jordan Wright, and Legislator Siela Bynoe — are in Albany come this time next year.
