Anthony Brindisi has a proven record of protecting clean air and water in New York, where he was born and raised.
Brindisi was first elected to the New York State Assembly in 2011 and has been a strong advocate for the environment in Albany. He sponsored legislation banning toxic chemicals in upholstered furniture and has been a supporter of clean energy and clean water legislation, including a major investment in drinking water infrastructure. He also served on the Utica School Board, where he led a major school modernization project.
As a representative, Brindisi will continue to fight for clean air and water and work to bring renewable energy jobs to his district. He will be a leader in addressing climate change.
Brindisi joins the U.S. House after defeating Representative Claudia Tenney, who earned an 6% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
In his own words:
“To me, protecting the environment means protecting people’s livelihoods, health, and future. In Upstate New York, sustainability and clean natural resources are essential to continue our long tradition of agriculture. In the Assembly, I took bold steps to push for more alternative energy and protect New York’s air and water.”
