OAKLAND, CA - The California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV) released the following statement regarding Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon’s appointment of Veronica Padilla-Campos to the South Coast Air Quality Management District (South Coast AQMD) Governing Board.

Statement from Mary Creasman, Chief Executive Officer, CLCV:

“CLCV is thrilled with Speaker Rendon’s appointment of Veronica Padilla-Campos to the South Coast AQMD Governing Board. For too long, the board has made decisions that benefited the interests of corporate polluters and profits at the expense of the 17 million Californians—almost half the population of California—that they represent. We applaud Speaker Rendon’s decision to appoint a proven champion for environmental justice.

Padilla-Campos is a local progressive advocate who will work towards environmental justice and creating clean jobs in our state. Her appointment is a significant step towards improving air quality for our communities and families.

Padilla-Campos is an excellent choice, and we are hopeful that this is just the beginning.”
