Since 1998, former City Council member Anthony Weiner has represented New York’s 9th District (Brooklyn and Queens) in the U.S. House of Representatives. Over the course of his tenure, Congressman Weiner has distinguished himself as an aggressive proponent of progressive energy and environmental legislation, earning a 100% League of Conservation Voter rating in 2006. In 2005, running on a broad quality of life platform, Weiner competed in the highly competitive NYC Democratic mayoral primary. This year, the Congressman broke with many prominent local transportation and environmental activists by opposing the Mayor’s controversial congestion pricing plan and favoring alternative approaches.
