The Maryland League of Conservation Voters Education Fund (Maryland LCV Ed Fund) has released a Vision 2025: Issue Guide ahead of the 2018 Electoral Primary. Maryland’s environmental laws and climate future are at stake in the upcoming 2018 Maryland election cycle and the 2019 legislative session.Voters throughout the state should be engaged on key issues, which are likely to grow in significance during the coming years. Maryland LCV Ed Fund released this guide as an asset to all Marylanders as they make their voting decisions on June 26.
"It is our hope that through this issue guide Maryland voters will be prepared with information on environmental and public health issues and ask the candidates running for elected office what their views are on these important topics,” said Karla Raettig, executive director of Maryland League of Conservation Voters Education Fund.
“With the federal administration attempting to gut life and land preserving environmental protections and defund critical support for the Chesapeake Bay Program, Maryland must defend itself and establish protections for land, air, water, and communities through strong state leadership. With the primary election just 22 days away, this Issue Guide will help inform voters in Maryland on the important issues the environmental community is collaborating on,” said Chuck Porcari, board chair of Maryland LCV Ed Fund.
