Bill Wadsworth’s strong record of environmental support in the Connecticut Legislature was highlighted in a key new endorsement from the Sierra Club-Connecticut Chapter.
Founded in 1892, Sierra Club is the oldest and largest environmental grassroots group in the country. In a letter to Representative Wadsworth, Connecticut Sierra Club Legislative Chair, Martin Mador, stated:
“On behalf of our 8,000 members, the Sierra Club-Connecticut Chapter is very pleased to endorse your candidacy for the Connecticut State House. Our decision is based on your thoughtful responses to our questionnaire… as well as your obvious record of commitment to environmental issues and your strong record of environmental support in the legislature.
The Sierra Club is confident that you will be a strong advocate for protecting the environmental health and thus the quality of life in Connecticut, and that you will prove a valued and reliable friend of the environment.”
Of the endorsement, Wadsworth said, “I am honored to receive the ardent support of this exceptional chapter of the oldest and largest environmental group in the country. The backing of this group goes beyond partisan politics and speaks directly to my record and intent on environmental protection issues. Protecting the environment is vital not only for our region, but our world, and I look forward to continuing my proven leadership in this regard.”
Wadsworth holds a degree in Engineering from the University of Connecticut, graduating Cum Laude and attended the Hartford Graduate Center. He attended Noah Wallace, West District, and Irving A. Robbins Schools and graduated from St. Paul High School. He also served in the United States Army as a Military Policeman. He can be reached at http://www.billwadsworth.com.
