Environmental group backs Krovoza

By From page A8 | March 06, 2014

The California League of Conservation Voters has announced it will endorse Davis Mayor Joe Krovoza in the 4th District Assembly race.

“It’s easy to find candidates who give lip service to environmental causes, but it is much harder to find those — like Joe — who have taken strong actions that make a real difference,” said David Allgood, the league’s political director, in a news release. “Joe’s environmental record speaks for itself.”

Krovoza has touted efforts as mayor to protect open space, improve air and water quality, reduce carbon emissions, increase energy and water efficiency.

He serves as the senior director for development and external relations for the UC Davis Energy Efficiency Center and Institute for Transportation Studies, where he has worked since 1996. He led the nonprofit Putah Creek Council for seven years.

Krovoza will face two other Democrats in the June primary, Davis Mayor Pro Tem Dan Wolk and Napa County Supervisor Bill Dodd.
