Virginia League of Conservation Voters Endorses Terry McAuliffe for Governor

Today, the Virginia League of Conservation Voters announced their endorsement of Terry McAuliffe for Governor, citing his emphasis on renewable energy and efficiency proposals.

“We feel that the dynamics of government in Virginia need to change dramatically in order to safeguard our environment; our Board is convinced that Terry McAuliffe has the broad vision and the contacts and requisite skills to meet challenges directly,” said Executive Director Lisa Guthrie. “McAuliffe has a clear and complete understanding of the interconnections between land use, transportation, and energy generation and transmission.”

“I am thrilled to have the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters,” added McAuliffe. “Virginia has incredible natural resources and natural beauty. The next governor needs to ensure that we are preserving those assets while increasing the quality of life for all Virginians by introducing new green jobs and attracting innovative renewable energy companies to the Commonwealth. I look forward to working with the LCV to make Virginia the greenest state in the union.”

The Virginia League of Conservation Voters is a nonpartisan voice for conservation and environmental protection across the Commonwealth.
