Water World – Ed Markey for United States Senate

Today, Clean Water Action endorsed Representative Ed Markey in the United States Senate race in Massachusetts , saying that he has been a tireless leader in promoting clean energy investments and environmental protection.

Elizabeth Saunders, Clean Water Action’s Massachusetts State Director commented that “Over Rep. Markey’s decades of service, he has been at the forefront of every major movement to protect our drinking water, air quality and community health and safety.” A short list of his leadership efforts include leading the drive for a smart response to the climate crisis, repeatedly protecting the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts from industry attacks, leading efforts to prevent harm to our health from toxic chemicals ranging from banning the notorious chemical bisphenol A (BPA) to phasing out dangerous chemicals in personal care products, being the most effective and persistent watchdog of nuclear safety issues and more.

“Clean Water Action is proud to endorse Ed Markey for the U.S. Senate,” said Cindy Luppi, New England Director. “As a longtime constituent of his, I know firsthand that he is a perfect choice for Massachusetts ‘ next senator. It’s hard to imagine anyone more qualified, more effective or more committed to health, environment and community justice.”
