Spanberger demonstrates leadership on climate issues
3/11/2021, 6 p.m.
The past year saw us battling several crises at once: An unprecedented pandemic and the economic fallout that came with it, systemic racism and disparity and the effects of a changing climate, which made itself known in a season of record wildfires and hurricanes.
These are serious problems that demand serious leadership, which is why I’m proud of my congressional representative, Rep. Abigail Spanberger of Henrico, for working toward concrete solutions in Congress.
The League of Conservation Voters released its 2020 National Environmental Scorecard, which ranks members of Congress based on their votes on a wide swath of issues, everything from public lands preservation to acting to address the climate crisis and secure a more just and equitable society.
Rep. Spanberger’s near perfect score of 96 percent demonstrates her clear support for clean air, clean water and public lands, as well as a commitment to helping Virginians through one of the most difficult times in our lives.
I’m grateful for her leader-ship in 2020, and look forward to her continuing commitment on these issues under a Biden administration that’s prioritizing climate action and environmental protections, and a more just and unified society.
