Carolyn Bourdeaux will be a strong ally in the fight against climate change in Congress and is committed to eliminating the influence of the oil and gas industries.
Bordeaux, who holds a Master’s in Public Administration from the University of Southern California and a PhD in public administration from Syracuse University, has worked as a professor at Georgia State University’s Andrew Young School of Public Policy since 2003. She founded the Center for State and Local Finance at the Andrew Young School and served as the Director of Georgia’s Senate Budget and Evaluation Office from 2007-2010.
As a U.S. Representative, Bordeaux will focus on investments in next generation infrastructure, such as zero emissions vehicles, trucks, and buses, and zero-carbon pollution commercial and residential buildings. She will also advocate for the United States to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement and push for the bold, urgent agenda we need to address the climate crisis.
Bordeaux joins the U.S. House to fill the seat of retiring Representative Rob Woodall, who earned a lifetime score of 4% on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
In her own words:
“I am deeply concerned about climate change, clean air, and clean water…We must leave a healthy environment for our kids, their kids and future generations.”
