TRENTON, NJ -- The state senator representing Hamilton and Robbinsville, Linda Greenstein, was recently honored by one of New Jersey's leading environmental advocacy agencies for her "outstanding devotion to protect New Jersey's precious air, water and open space."
The New Jersey League of Conservation Voters (NJLCV) gifted Greenstein with the prestigious "Emerald Award" at their Fifth Annual Green Tie Gala. Ed Potosnak, executive director of NJCLV said the event “is a special occasion to bring together New Jersey’s environmental champions and celebrate the incredible work we are all doing and the major successes that we’ve achieved.”
“I’m honored to receive the Emerald Award and I thank New Jersey LCV for its leadership and partnership. I look forward to continuing to work with New Jersey LCV to ensure we protect New Jersey’s incredible natural resources," said Greenstein.
New Jersey League of Conservation Voters is a non-partisan organization whose mission is to elect environmental champions, hold public officials accountable, and support laws which protect our environment and improve the quality of people’s lives.
New Jersey's Attorney General Gurbir Grewal received the Founders Award in honor of "major victories New Jersey has won for the environment throughout his term."
“The stakes have never been higher for protecting our planet, and I am proud of the work that New Jersey is doing to stand up for the environment and to safeguard the health of our communities,” said Grewal.
The awards were presented at the NJCV annual gala that was attended by a mix of more than 150 conservation leaders including elected officials, green partners, and environmental voters from across the state celebrated New Jersey’s strong bipartisan tradition of protecting our water, air and open spaces.
