CRES FORMALLY ENDORSES REP. JOHN KATKO IN NEW YORK

OCTOBER 3, 2018  Today, Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) formally endorsed Rep. John Katko’s re-election bid for U.S. House in New York’s 24th District.

“America faces big challenges and it’s critical that candidates address them openly and with concrete solutions during the midterm elections. When it comes to growing our economy, bolstering our national security, and preserving our climate, voters and candidates are embracing clean energy. CRES is proud to endorse Rep. John Katko for his demonstrated leadership and support of a cleaner energy future,” said CRES Executive Director James Dozier.

“I am proud to receive an endorsement from Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions. Cleaner forms of energy such as nuclear are a critical economic driver for central New York, delivering reliable, emissions-free energy to consumers across our state.  My district is home to three nuclear power plants, and I will always support the clean power these plants produce and the hundreds of men and women they employ.  I have been a steadfast champion of the FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant, which generates enough carbon free electricity to power 800,000 homes and provides hundreds of skilled, well-paying jobs in our region.  I will continue to promote policies that foster New York’s clean energy portfolio and encourage the development of dependable, abundant and safe energy for years to come,” said Rep. John Katko.

Rep. John Katko’s record on clean energy includes:

  • Member, Climate Solutions Caucus.
  • Voted to protect funding for key Department of Energy programs that promote innovation and investment in clean energy technologies.
  • Cosponsored legislation to reduce methane emissions, and to increase investment in nuclear energy.
