Former EPA Regional Administrator Judith Enck endorsed Democratic congressional candidate Antonio Delgado on Thursday, calling him best positioned to oppose President Donald Trump’s environmental policies.

“Our clean air and clean water are being threatened by our own federal government, like never before. We need every member of Congress to fight hard against the anti-environmental agenda, in the White House and in Congress. That is why I am honored to support Antonio Delgado for Congress in New York’s 19th District,” she said in a statement.

“I live in Antonio’s district and I have spent my entire career working for clean air, clean water and a restored environment that protects our health, particularly the health of our children. I am enthusiastically supporting Antonio Delgado because he presents a new vision for the future that embraces renewable energy, green job growth, sustainable development and recognizes how crucial it is to pass legislation that not only aims to mitigate the factors contributing to climate change but also builds our resiliency. I am confident he will work hard for the people of NY19 in Washington and protect our interests.”

Delgado is running against first-term Republican Rep. John Faso in the 19th House district in the Hudson Valley.

Enck, well respected in environmental advocacy circles, has also been a prominent supporter of Cynthia Nixon’s campaign for governor.

“I am honored to have the endorsement of Judith Enck, an environmental leader in our district,” Delgado said.

“Judith understands the leadership role our federal government can play in protecting our environment and has spoken with me at length about how government policy can incentivize and promote renewable energy, counteract the impacts of climate change, create green jobs, conserve our region’s land and waterways, reduce plastics waste and fight for protections like the Clean Water Rule and funding for the EPA. I look forward to working with Judith, along with others in our district who are dedicated to protecting and improving our environment.”
