Clean Water Action builds grassroots strength in local Northern Virginia communities to change state and national politics and environmental policy.
Clean Water Action offices will engage on key state and local races in all our states, seeking to protect pro-environmental majorities where they exist and flip control of chambers currently with anti-environmental majorities. Below are our priority federal races. We'll work on dozens of other state, local, and federal races in the fall of 2018.
“Jennifer Wexton is the best choice for people of Northern Virginia -- we are excited to endorse her," said Michael Bochynski, Clean Water Action Chesapeake Program Manager. "In the Virginia State Senate, Jennifer sponsored legislation to increase consumers’ access to community solar energy, mandate quicker reporting on hazardous spills in Virginia waterways, and broaden the powers of the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality to go after polluters and stop construction of natural gas pipelines.”
“We need elected officials who care about our water and our health. Don won’t just be a positive vote on these issues but he will lead and advocate for getting things done. We are proud to endorse Don’s campaign for the 8th congressional district, and look forward to working with him again as a legislator. The choice is clear – Don Beyer for Congress.”
