The New York League of Conservation Voters endorsed Majority Leader Peter Harckham in his re-election bid for the Westchester County Board of Legislators.
Harckham, a Democrat representing District 2, is a former chair of the board’s Committee on Environment and Energy and current chair of the Subcommittee on Septics.
“It is truly an honor to once again have the support of the League of Conservation Voters, which is one of the most respected and effective advocates for protecting the environment in New York State,” said Harckham. “I am proud that we’ve been able to continue protecting our water quality and other conservation efforts during this time of fiscal belt tightening. I believe that good environmental policy is good fiscal policy.”
Harckham received the group’s backing in 2007 and 2009.
District 2 includes Bedford, Lewisboro, Mount Kisco, North Salem, Pound Ridge and part of Somers.
