Baltimore, MD – Today Food & Water Action announced its endorsement of Marc Elrich for Montgomery County Executive.

“During his time as a County Council Member, Marc has been an innovative champion for the environment. He is a knowledgeable, policy-driven, progressive advocate for all,” said Food & Water Action Senior Policy Advocate Mitch Jones. “Marc has declared climate change to be the defining environmental issue of our time, and his work on the Council has shown he means it.”

As Councilman, Elrich sponsored the resolution that requires Montgomery County to eliminate greenhouse gases by 2035. He also pushed the Council to support removing dirty “renewables” like trash incineration from Maryland’s Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard.

“We can be assured that with Marc as County Executive, Montgomery County will live up to its commitment to fight climate change and lead the state towards a truly clean, renewable future,” Jones said.
