Washington D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced its endorsement of Christina Hale for election to the U.S. House of Representatives from Indiana’s 5th District.
“Christina Hale is committed to supporting clean energy jobs and clean water infrastructure,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “She has fought for the health and safety of all communities in Indiana in the state legislature and we are proud to support her election to Congress because we know she will continue to prioritize clean air and water, climate action and growing Indiana’s clean energy economy.”
“I’m honored to be endorsed by the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund, and look forward to working with them in Congress to combat climate change and create clean energy jobs right here in Indiana,” said Christina Hale. “Climate change is not just an environmental issue – it affects our national security, our health, our economy, and disproportionately hurts communities of color. Protecting our air and water and taking comprehensive actions to stop climate change before it’s too late will be among my top priorities in Congress.”
Christina Hale is a lifelong Hoosier. She worked as the Chief Communications Officer for Kiwanis International, when she was elected to serve as a member of the Indiana House of Representatives. She was a state representative until 2016. Even as a member of a super-minority, she was able to pass more than 60 bills, every single one with bipartisan support. After serving in the state House she returned to Kiwanis as Executive Director of Youth Programs.
