Fortgang Campaign for Assembly in New Jersey’s 26th District Announces Endorsement from Leading Conservation Group
Verona, NJ — July 25, 2019
The New Jersey League of Conservation Voters (NJLVC) has announced their endorsement of
Laura Fortgang, challenger to long-time opponents to environmental initiatives.
For 50 years, NJLCV has been the statewide political voice for the environment, supporting
environmentally responsible candidates for state and local offices, advocate for strong environmental
policies and hold elected officials accountable to safeguard the health of New Jersey’s communities.
“The NJLCV is a leading advocate for our fundamental needs: clean water, clean air and preserving
New Jersey’s precious open spaces. I am honored to receive their endorsement,” states Fortgang.
“The 26th District is on the front lines of environmental attacks. Our incumbents, Jay Webber and
BettyLou DeCroce, have consistently voted against forward looking fiscal and environmental
solutions, against removing lead from drinking water, against protecting against storm run-off which is
currently decimating the communities around Lake Hopatcong and against protecting homes from
flooding. This is the year for northern New Jersey to elect representatives who will once again protect
our families’ basic needs. We can’t afford not to.”
“We are very excited to announce the first round of our 2019 endorsements for Assembly,” ,
Executive Director of New Jersey LCV, Ed Potosnak said in a statement. “These candidates are all
committed to fighting for healthy communities, creating good local jobs in the clean energy economy,
and preserving New Jersey’s natural resources. I am confident that electing environmental
champions like these to the Assembly will ensure New Jersey is protected for future generations.”
