Climate Action Rhode Island releases election endorsements

Image result for teresa tanzi and green energyClimate Action Rhode Island (CARI), the Rhode Island affiliate of 350.org, is proud to announce its enthusiastic endorsement of 13 candidates for State House seats in Rhode Island.

We base our endorsements on the candidate’s commitment to bold policies that support renewable energy, ratchet down fossil-fuel emissions, and move us towards a sustainable future, as well as on the dynamics of their particular district’s contest.

The candidates CARI has endorsed for the November 6, 2018 General Election are:

Marcia Ranglin-Vassell, House 5, Providence
Justine Caldwell, House 30, East Greenwich
Teresa Tanzi, House 34, Narragansett/South Kingstown
Lauren Niedel, House 40, Foster/Glocester/Coventry
Michael Steiner, House 41, Scituate/western Cranston
Liana Cassar, House 66, Barrington/East Providence
Laufton Ascencao, House 68, Bristol/Warren
Susan Donovan, House 69, Bristol/Portsmouth
Terri Cortvriend, House 72, Middletown/Portsmouth
Sam Bell, Senate 5, Providence
Dawn Euer, Senate 13, Jamestown/Newport
Michael Fine, Senate 21, Scituate/Foster/Coventry/West Greenwich
Bridget Valverde, Senate 35, East Greenwich/North Kingstown/South Kingstown/Narragansett

CARI has reviewed the track record of each of these candidates and determined that each has a history of driving efforts to fight the climate crisis, and has made protecting the environment against climate change one of their top priorities.

Climate Action RI enthusiastically endorses each of these candidates for elective office, and we believe that each will help lead our state to the forefront of climate action, environmental sustainability, and shared prosperity.

We call on Rhode Island voters to volunteer their time in canvassing and GOTV efforts for these candidates leading up to the election, and just as importantly, urge them to cast their votes on Tuesday, November 6th.

Signed,
Kendra Anderson, President (Warwick, RI)
Alex Kithes, Political Chair (Woonsocket, RI)
