Murphy Pledges to Focus on Conservation, Green Energy
ORLANDO – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund today endorsed businesswoman, educator and former national security specialist Stephanie Murphy for Congress in Florida’s Seventh Congressional District, which includes much of downtown Orlando, northern Orange County and all of Seminole County. The LCV Action Fund works to elect candidates who will implement sound environmental policies.
“Stephanie Murphy understands we have an obligation to protect our planet for generations to come,” said LCV Action Fund President Gene Karpinski. “She was a strong supporter of Amendment 1 in 2014 to protect Florida’s precious land and water, and she will bring that same commitment to Congress to combat climate change and ensure that we have clean air to breathe and safe water to drink.”
Murphy said preserving Florida’s natural resources would be key to protecting Florida’s top industries, such as tourism and agriculture, and the jobs in those industries.
“By protecting Florida’s natural resources, we not only preserve our beautiful state for generations to come, but we also protect our economic way of life and the jobs that come with it,” said Murphy. “When I am elected, I will be a strong advocate for our environment, for cleaner air and water, and for smart investments in green energy that both reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and make energy more affordable for Florida families.”
Murphy is featured on LCV Action Fund’s GiveGreen website, the only bundling website devoted exclusively to raising money for environmental champions for federal office.
