Sen. Gratwick earns high marks for pro-environment voting record

Posted: September 10, 2018 | Senator Gratwick

AUGUSTA — Sen. Geoff Gratwick, D-Bangor, made the “2017-18 Honor Roll” from the Maine Conservation Voters for his consistent support for the state’s environment, as well as policies that protect public health from toxic chemicals and advance the development and adoption of clean, renewable energy.

Maine Conservation Voters scored nine key environmental votes during this year’s legislative session. Sen. Gratwick received a 100 percent score for his votes.

“Year after year, Mainers enjoy the benefits of a clean environment and beautiful natural landscape,” said Sen. Gratwick. “I am proud of my record preserving that heritage in Augusta. However, there is much more to do — such as pursuing strong solar energy policies that would benefit our environment and create jobs in our state.”

Gratwick joins 15 other Senate Democrats and one Senate Republican who earned perfect scores for their votes on conservation, energy efficiency, clean power generation and public health. He is serving his third term representing District 9 in the Maine Senate, which includes Bangor and Hermon.
