Representative Tom Suozzi is running for a full fourth term to represent New York’s 3rd Congressional District after winning a special election this year. He previously served this district for three terms in Congress. He also has previously served as Mayor and Nassau County Executive, where he implemented a program to source 25 percent of the county’s energy from renewable sources and helped pass a $150 million bond program to preserve open space and protect Long Island Sound. He also initiated 12 brownfield clean-up projects and established a groundwater protection program to improve water quality. Under Tom’s leadership, Glen Cove was the first community on the Long Island Sound to reduce nitrogen emissions into the Sound, cutting nitrogen output from its sewage treatment plant by half. For his efforts, New York LCV named Suozzi as the “environmentalist of the year” in 2008. 

In Congress, he was Co-Chair of the bipartisan Long Island Sound Caucus. During his tenure, he helped increase funding for the Long Island Sound Geographic Program by 1000% (from $4 million in 2016 to $40 million in 2023) and secured federal dollars for projects that reduced stormwater runoff, promoted wind energy, and improved water infrastructure. He also helped to secure tens of millions of dollars in additional funding to clean up the Navy-Grumman Bethpage Plume. Representative Suozzi has earned a 98% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard. Representative Suozzi is endorsed by LCV Action Fund and NRDC Action Fund.
