NYLCV Announces 19 New Endorsements Across New York for the 2024 Election

With a total of 19 new endorsements across the state, the New York League of Conservation Voters Gives Green is proud to support a bipartisan slate of candidates for the 2024 election. 

As primary races heat up, the League’s second round of endorsements include four congressional candidates, three candidates for the State Senate, and 12 candidates for the State Assembly. 

“After the hottest year on record and a relentless onslaught of extreme weather – including apocalyptic oranges skies from wildfires hundreds of miles away and catastrophic flooding that paralyzed the community and forced some state parks to close – 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.”

The League’s endorsements include Gregory Meeks (NY-5), Tom Suozzi (NY-3), Laura Gillen, and John Mannion (NY-22) for U.S. Congress;  three candidates for State Senate, including Pat Fahy (SD-46), April Baskin (SD-63), and Siela Bynoe (SD-6); and 12 candidates for State Assembly. 

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.
