The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters, a leading environmental group in our state, has endorsed Norm Needleman for the State Senate seat from the 33rd District.
In selecting Needleman for endorsement, CTLCV said: “We work hard to identify candidates we believe are true leaders on environmental issues based on their past work and their responses to our candidate questionnaire.”
“Breathable air, clean water and unspoiled open space are constantly under attack by special interest in Hartford,” said Needleman. “My commitment to making environmental protection and open space preservation protection a top legislative priority will not waver, despite the strong opposition to measures that commit resources to environmental protection. When I am elected to the State Senate, I will work with CTLCV to address vital issues that will be debated in the coming legislative session: the State Water Plan, DEEP funding, renewable energy, and bans on toxic chemicals. I am deeply grateful that CTLCV has recognized my longstanding commitment to responsible environmental stewardship.”
Norm Needleman is the Democratic candidate for the 33rd State Senate District, which consists of the towns of Chester, Clinton, Colchester, Deep River, East Haddam, East Hampton, Essex, Haddam, Lyme, Portland, Westbrook, and part of Old Saybrook.
Needleman is the founder and CEO of Tower Laboratories, a manufacturing business. As CEO, he has built the business to become a leader in its field, employing over 225 people.
