You’ve heard about the blue wave, you’re experiencing the heat wave, and you know there is change in the air. I am excited about what we are seeing all across Maryland- a Green Wave. Last month’s primary election was an affirmation of what we’ve known here at Maryland LCV all along- people want leaders who will stand up and protect the environment.
Over the past year, we endorsed 117 candidates around the state. On June 26th, 106 of them won their primary bid- a 91% success rate! We could not have done it without you, Dannielle. When these candidates win in November, we are excited to work with them from their first day on our environmental agenda that represents Marylanders in the General Assembly.
Together, we can continue to advocate for strong environmental policy in Maryland and exceed our goals for smart climate policy, clean water, public health protection, and open spaces for every Marylander. With the right leaders in office, we can move the needle in favor of common sense legislation and regulations. That’s why we go through a strenuous endorsement process and publicize to the public who the environmental candidates are.
