OAKLAND, Calif., May 21, 2012 — Today the California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV) launched a $92,644 mail program touting Congressional candidate Julia Brownley’s strong record of fighting for clean energy jobs, protecting our coastlines and cleaning up Santa Susana labs.  The program will include four flights of mail targeting 38,239 households of likely voters.

CLCV and its partners at the League of Conversation Voters Action Fund have both endorsed Julia Brownley for election to the U.S. House of Representatives representing California’s 26th district.

“Julia Brownley is a proven champion for California’s environment, and we know she’ll carry those strong environmental values with her to Washington,” said CLCV CEO Sarah Rose. “CLCV is working to elect Julia Brownley to Congress because she’ll stand up to corporate polluters that threaten our air and water and work to build a clean energy future for California and the nation.”

As a member of the California Assembly, Julia Brownley fought for legislation to eliminate single-use, carryout plastic bags, sparking a statewide grassroots movement to ban the bags. In 2009 she successfully won approval for setting standards to clean toxic and radioactive waste from the Santa Susana Field Laboratory. Brownley has earned a stellar 99% lifetime score for her votes on environmental legislation in CLCV’s California Environmental Scorecard.

“Julia Brownley has a long track record of leadership on protecting the environment and the public’s health and will be a powerful advocate for the residents of Ventura County and Los Angeles County in Congress,” said Rose.

Among the mail pieces produced are the following:

California Environmental Voters (formerly the California League of Conservation Voters) believes the climate crisis is here and this moment requires transformative change. California has the policy solutions to stop climate change but lacks the political will to do it at the rate and scale that’s necessary. EnviroVoters exists to build the political power to solve the climate crisis, advance justice, and create a roadmap for global action. We organize voters, elect and train candidates, and hold lawmakers accountable for bold policy change. We won’t stop until we have resilient, healthy, thriving communities, and a democracy and economy that is just and sustainable for all. Join us at and on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
