RICHMOND – Today, the Virginia League of Conservation Voters announced its endorsement of Jennifer Boysko for Senate of Virginia, to fill the vacant 33rd District seat formerly held by Jennifer Wexton, who was elected to Congress in November.
Boysko heads to a special election tomorrow, Jan. 8, on the eve of the 2019 General Assembly.
First elected to the legislature in 2015 as a Delegate representing the 86th House District, Boysko has been named a “Legislative Hero” by Virginia LCV three times for voting alongside our legislative positions 100 percent of the time. Virginia LCV previously endorsed Boysko in both her 2015 and 2017 contests.
“Delegate Boysko’s record speaks for itself – every year she’s come to the General Assembly, she’s prioritized Virginians’ clean air, clean water, and protected lands 100 percent of the time,” said Michael Town, executive director of Virginia LCV. “A reliable environmental champion, Jennifer will make an excellent Senator, and we look forward to working with her to act to address climate change, shield clean water for all Virginians, and safeguard open space across the Commonwealth.”
During the 2018 legislative session, Boysko was on the right side of several important conservation issues. These included voting against extending tax credits for coal companies, and a bill attacking the Northam Administration’s authority to address climate change, while supporting commonsense measures giving the state more regulatory oversight over natural gas pipelines and legislation to ensure Virginia’s meeting its mass transit funding obligations.
The Virginia League of Conservation Voters serves as the political voice of the state’s conservation community, working to make sure Virginia’s elected officials recognize that our natural heritage is an environmental and economic treasure for all. Virginia LCV works with conservation leaders across Virginia and strives for a conservation majority in state government. We secure good public policies on the state level and hold public officials accountable for their positions on environmental issues. For more information, visit www.valcv.org.
