Clean Water Action touts two endorsements

Friday, August 29, 2014 by Jo Clifton

David Foster, state director for Clean Water Action, announced Thursday that his organization has endorsed Gregorio “Greg” Casar in District 4 and Ann Kitchen in District 5. Noting that District 4 is 65 percent Hispanic and “includes many working class neighborhoods,” Foster said Casar “fully understands that protecting the environment and growing the economy go hand-in-hand, and he is committed to increasing investments in energy efficiency and rooftop solar that pay a living wage and provide a ladder into the middle class.” As for Kitchen, Foster said, “Ann Kitchen is hands-down the best candidate to represent District 5 … She has stellar environmental credentials, earning a 100 percent pro-environment voting record in the legislature, co-founding the Save Our Springs coalition and serving two years as the chair of Livable City. She supports protecting Austin’s water supply through conservation and reuse rather than paying for expensive new sources, and is committed to keeping water required to meet essential needs affordable for all.” Clean Water Action intends to announce more endorsements next week.
