The Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund has endorsed Jason Lewis in the election for 5th Middlesex District in the Massachusetts Senate, a credit to his commitment to the environment and climate action. With issues of public health, environmental justice, transportation and energy policy inextricably linked, we need leaders at every level of government who understand the pressing issues of their community and will call for ambitious action.
“Senator Lewis has been a strong leader on too many environmental issues to name, but especially on waste-reduction as the Senate Chair of the Zero Waste Caucus,” said ELM Action Fund Executive Director Casey Bowers. “We are thrilled to continue our support for him.”
“I’m thrilled to receive the endorsement of the Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund for my re-election campaign to the State Senate,” said Senator Lewis. “If re-elected I will continue to fight for bold policies to combat climate change, protect our environment, grow our state’s clean energy economy like offshore wind power, and reduce waste especially single-use plastics.”
Since 2014, Lewis has represented the 5th Middlesex District in the Massachusetts Senate. In the current session, he is the primary sponsor of waste reduction and animal welfare legislation, as well as a bill to restrict the use of the toxic herbicide glyphosate. As the Senate Chair of the Zero Waste Caucus, he has been an ally to the ELM Action Fund on several priority waste-reduction bills. Lewis is a proponent of offshore wind and holds that environmental justice should be central to decision-making in state government.
