CLCV Rejects Attack on Debra Bowen’s Environmental Commitment

Statement of Warner Chabot, CEO, CA League of Conservation Voters

The CA League of Conservation Voters (CLCV), rejects the latest round of the misleading campaign mail that questions Debra Bowen’s integrity, her commitment to the environment and the public interest. These attacks are unfair and unwarranted. Bowen has fought for the public interest, the public’s full involvement in our democracy, and the environment her entire career. She’s never given in to special interests of any kind, and has always stood up to big polluters like the oil industry.

That’s why Debra Bowen is the only candidate to receive the endorsement of both the Sierra Club and CLCV.

Bowen earned a 96% lifetime score from CLCV on environmental issues while serving in the state legislature. Of all the candidates, Bowen brings the greatest depth of experience and achievement on a wider range of environmental issues. She fought for laws to oppose offshore drilling, fight climate change, promote alternative energy and to clean up the Ports of L.A. and Long Beach. With now-Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, she passed a landmark environmental justice bill to protect poor communities from becoming environmental dumping grounds.

We believe Debra Bowen’s experience and integrity will make her a highly respected and effective environmental champion and leader in Congress.

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.
