Greenwich Rep. Fred Camillo Aces Environmental Scorecard
GREENWICH, Conn. — When it comes to environmental issues, state Rep. Fred Camillo of Greenwich earns high marks for his green agenda.
Awarded a 100% rating from the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters in 2015 for his environmental scorecard and has been given consistently high marks for his environmental record and advocacy.
The rating was based on Camillo’s voting record on environmental bills in committees and on the floor of the House during this year’s legislative session. The group recognizes legislators who take the lead on supporting positive and healthy environmental actions, said the organization in a statement.
“The recognition of this score is something I am proud of, but what means even more are some of these very issues that I was able to support, lobby for, and vote on,” Camillo said in a statement. “Connecticut is a beautiful state, and my history with recycling as well as my legislative work in this area is consistent with my belief in that.”
The organization is a bipartisan, nonprofit that works with the state to protect the environment by lobbying elected officials. The organization works with local environmental groups to identify, highlight and track important bills that affect the Nutmeg State’s air, water, wildlife, open space and health.
