Today, I formally took the Green New Deal Pledge.
In order to build a long-term, resilient recovery and help protect against future systematic threats, I support a federal Green New Deal (GND) and as State Senator, I will work to implement a broad Wisconsin based GND that includes the innovative policies to be a leader in clean energy, climate action, sustainable communities, regional transit, smarter — more affordable housing, food security, flood resilience and entrepreneurship — a plan that attracts investment and provides well-paying, accessible jobs and helps restore Wisconsin’s environmental heritage and leadership tradition.
As State Senator, my advocacy for climate policy and the Green New Deal will be stronger than my opponents and the fossil fuel opposition lobbying against it because of my background as a locally elected official, environmental manager, environmental nonprofit leader and small business owner that make me a highly credible messenger on the economic case for climate policy.
