Rep. Johnson recognized for 100% environmental voting record
Congressman tours Fourth District clean-energy manufacturer sonnen with Environment Georgia
TUCKER, GA – Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) was recognized today by Environment Georgia for his 100 percent clean-energy and environmental voting record in 2017.
He received the award after he toured clean-energy battery maker sonnen off LaVista Road in Tucker.
“Rep. Johnson voted with our planet and our families 100% of the time in 2017,” said Jennette Gayer the Executive Director of Environment Georgia who presented the Congressman with Environment Georgia’s “Environmental Champion” award. “Today’s event is fitting--we are touring a facility dedicated to helping us transition away from dirty energy sources and maximize clean energy from the sun.”
“It’s an honor to be recognized by such an important organization like Environment Georgia,” said Johnson, a member of the bipartisan Safe Climate Caucus that works to solve the important issues around climate change.
“Protection of our imperiled planet is the central challenge of our time. Climate change is real and threatens our health, the environment, national security and our economy, and I’m committed to working with anyone on Capitol Hill, the White House and the Fourth District to invest in clean-energy technologies and jobs.”
