The New York League of Conservation Voters Gives Green has announced its latest round of endorsements in the 2021 general election cycle, endorsing five candidates in New York City, Long Island and Westchester. This year, 270 candidates sought NYLCV’s endorsement, a record number, and the League has endorsed 107 candidates across the state.
NYLCV NYC Program Associate Carlos Castell Croke testified at the City Council Finance Committee Executive Budget hearing. We advocated for funding for parks as well as staffing in critical environmental offices.
We recently held a policy forum on instituting a Clean Fuel Standard, which would transform the fuels market from one that relies nearly exclusively on petroleum to one that employs a variety of cleaner alternatives including electricity.
A group of environmental advocates, including NYLCV, and elected officials held a press conference to call on the State Legislature to pass legislation that would make it easier for New Yorkers to purchase electric vehicles directly from manufacturers. NYLCV supports the legislation because it would encourage the growth of emission-free transportation.
