As a small business, owner, Brad Schneider knows that we can preserve our global leadership through stewardship and innovation in the clean technology industries.
In Congress, he will support legislation that would incentivize the development and manufacturing of clean energy technologies – such as wind, solar, and geothermal – here in the United States. Schneider also promises to safeguard vital EPA protections.
Prior to being elected to Congress, Brad Schneider took an active role in his community as a member of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and a board member of the Business and Professional People for the Public Interest (BPI) and the Family Firm Institute Midwest Chapter. He is the owner of Cadence Consulting Group and Lead Out Capital Partners.
Schneider joins the U.S. House after defeating one-term Representative Bob Dold, who received a score of 34% on LCV’s 2011 National Environmental Scorecard during his first year in Congress.
In his own words:
"Of all the reasons I support these policies, the one that is constantly in my mind is the overwhelming desire for the next generation, my kids and their families included, to be able to live in a world where they can breathe the air, swim in the water, and enjoy the natural resources we have today."
