Craig Johnson Earns NYLCV Endorsement

The New York League of Conservation Voters (NYLCV) today endorsed Craig Johnson for the open state senate seat in the 7th district on Long Island, citing his strong record of promoting environmental solutions as a Nassau County legislator and his vision to advance the environmental agenda.

Specifically, Craig Johnson has:
  • helped pass $50 million and $100 million environmental bond initiatives to protect Nassau County's drinking water, preserve its remaining open space and farmlands, and improve parklands and park facilities;
  • pledged to support major smart growth initiatives, including the "State Smart Growth Public Infrastructure Policy Act" and development projects around LIRR stations to encourage mass transit ridership; and
  • pledged to make future state funding of transportation initiatives contingent on the use of clean fuels.
"Craig Johnson has a strong record on the environment in Nassau County, and his future plans reveal a commitment to advance an innovative environmental and economic growth agenda. The League is delighted that Johnson shares our vision to make smart growth a top legislative priority, and we're pleased to endorse him in the race for state senate in the 7th district," said NYLCV Executive Director Marcia Bystryn.


The New York League of Conservation Voters (NYLCV) was founded in 1989 as a non-partisan, policy making and political action organization that works to make environmental protection a top priority with elected officials, decision makers, and voters by evaluating incumbent performance and endorsing and electing environmental leaders to office in New York State.
