I thought I'd send this matrix along for tomorrow's Congressional vote.  Most of the five democratic candidates appear to be very strong environmentalists so the data isn't super helpful  - bust just in case you were wondering...... 
About half of Cambridge is voting tomorrow (here's the link from the Election Commission to find out if you are: https://www.cambridgema.gov/election/voterregistrationsearch.aspx)
Perhaps I'll see you at the Polls tomorrow.

Subject: How Massachusetts 5th District candidates stack up on climate


Many of you live within the Fifth Congressional District of Massachusetts and are deciding who should replace Ed Markey to represent you in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Tomorrow’s primary election will be a critical step in determining who represents our voice on climate in congress.

Over the last month, climate activists from throughout the Boston area have been pushing our candidates to take strong positions on climate change. We’ve organized candidate forums, asked hard questions, and now we’re pleased to announce the results of a survey showing the climate positions of five major candidates. Click here to download a PDF of all the candidates' positions.

It’s no accident that most of our candidates are taking strong positions on issues that matter to us. The climate movement is mobilizing like never before: from mass actions fighting Keystone XL, to savvy divestment campaigns -- candidates for public office in Massachusetts (and around the country!) are taking the climate movement seriously.

Tomorrow, let’s help politicians connect the dots between strong climate action and votes at the polls. If you are not sure where to vote, you can find out at this web site.  Together, we can send a climate champion to Washington, and then get back to building the movement here at home.

Vote climate!
