Former Maryland Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown, a retired colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve, earned an 84 percent score on Maryland LCV’s Environmental Scorecard during his tenure in the Maryland House of Delegates.
Serving with former Governor Martin O’Malley, the O’Malley/Brown administration developed a Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan that resulted in over a billion dollars in economic benefits and created tens of thousands of jobs. Brown also worked closely with the Maryland Legislature to build consensus on environmental issues like the Maryland Offshore Wind Act.
In Congress, Brown is committed to working on reducing carbon pollution from power plants, expanding the clean energy economy, and building clean energy infrastructure. He will also make increasing energy efficiency and reducing residential and commercial energy waste a priority.
Brown fills the seat previously held by Representative Donna Edwards, who received a 97 percent lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard through 2015.
In his own words:
“I am committed to doing our part to address climate change, strengthen our air and water quality, and preserve our National Parks. Together, we’ll work to ensure future generations can enjoy a clean and healthy environment.”
