GARDNER’S WEEK OF FAILURE: Six Years Ago, Gardner Voted To Sell Out Our Public Lands & Let Polluters Spew Waste Into Our Water
Denver, CO – Six years ago today, then-Representative Cory Gardner voted to sell off Colorado’s public lands for oil and gas drilling and give coal companies a free pass to spew waste into our rivers and streams. In his time in Washington, Gardner has made it his mission to prop up polluters and crusade against commonsense protections for our air, land, and water. Even the global pandemic hasn’t stopped Gardner’s crusade, as he has stood willingly by as the Trump Administration has given an “open license to pollute” and implemented “essentially a nationwide waiver of environmental rules..”
The Trump administration, with Gardner’s support, has unwound at least 100 environmental protections for our public lands, clean air, and clean water.
Gardner’s votes to sell out our public lands and give polluters a free pass are a few of the many anti-environmental votes that earned him an abysmal lifetime score of 11% from the League of Conservation Voters and a spot on their notorious “Dirty Dozen” list for the second time. Gardner is desperately trying to greenwash his record, but Coloradans won’t be fooled by the election-year stunt.
