Text of the Clean Money for Climate Pledge (for posterity)
The Clean Money for Climate Pledge: "As a candidate for office in Massachusetts, I pledge not to take campaign contributions from climate polluters so that the public can be confident that my votes on energy policy are in the best interests of my constituents.
Specifically, I will refuse campaign contributions of $200 and over from executives, in-house lobbyists and others employed by the following ten companies: BP, Chevron, Eversource, Exxon Mobil, Global Partners, Global Petroleum, Kinder Morgan, National Grid, Shell and Spectra Energy. "
Questions? Curious about why we're focusing on these ten companies? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions page, or email Andrew Gordon, firstname.lastname@example.org.
