National Resources Defense Council Action Fund Endorses Sean Casten

(Downer’s Grove, IL). On June 15th, the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) Action Fund endorsed Illinois’ 6th Congressional District Representative Sean Casten for re-election. The NRDC Action Fund, whose mission is to build political support for protecting the environment, endorsed Casten because he will “fight to create clean energy jobs [and] restore common–sense environmental safeguards.”

“My top priority in Congress and business has been to combat climate change and leave the world a better place for our children,” said Representative Sean Casten. “Reducing carbon emissions and promoting clean energy jobs is the key to building a future that we can all be proud of. I am honored to receive the NRDC Action Fund endorsement and will continue to champion environmental issues in Congress.”

Casten is a cosponsor of the bipartisan Climate Action Now Act that would keep America committed to the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. He also serves as Co-Chair of the New Democrat Coalition Climate Change Task Force. Prior to his career in public service, Casten was the CEO of a clean energy company that worked to profitably reduce greenhouse emissions.
