The California League of Conservation Voters, one of the most effective and respected environmental organizations in the state, today announced their support of Democrat Monique Limón for the 37th Assembly District. Limón, a member of the Santa Barbara Unified School District Board, is running for the 37th State Assembly District, which straddles Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties and is currently represented by Assemblymember Das Williams.
“The California League of Conservation Voters supports Monique Limón because she has proven to be an effective coalition builder as she works to conserve our state’s environment and improve our air and water quality,” stated Sarah Rose, the organization’s CEO. “Ultimately, Limón fights to protect and improve our health, along the South Coast and throughout California.” Rose, in reference to Limón’s efforts to expand jobs in the “green” economy, also noted that “Limón works to implement energy efficiency and the use of alternative energy in schools through the California Clean Energy Jobs Act.”
“Some only know of my work to improve our schools and universities — but I’m also proud of my record of standing up for our coast and environment,” Limón said. “I’m honored to have the support of the CLCV, and look forward to working with them to prevent and reduce pollution in our air and water, and adopt smart policies to address climate change.”
Limón is also supported by Assemblymember Das Williams, State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, Ventura County Supervisor Steve Bennett, former Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell and dozens of other local environmental leaders.
