Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect candidates who will support sound environmental policies, announced today its endorsement of Cindy Axne for Congress in Iowa’s 3rd District.
“Cindy Axne has a proven track record of creating good-paying clean energy jobs in Iowa,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “Her experience making Iowa a national leader in the wind energy industry will be an asset in Congress as she continues to champion these causes and fight to improve soil and water quality for all Iowans. We are thrilled to endorse her campaign.”
“Our farmers here in Iowa are already starting to see the devastating and very real effects of climate change with increased drought and floods,” said Cindy Axne. “In Congress I will be a staunch advocate for our environment, and will fight for policies that protect our food supplies and the livelihoods of hard-working Iowans all across the state. I am proud to be endorsed by the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund.”
Cindy Axne grew up on the south side of Des Moines, Iowa and earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Iowa. From 2005 to 2014 she worked for former Iowa Governor Chet Culver’s Agenda for Energy Efficiency and Clean Environment and helped to make Iowa the number two state in the nation in wind energy production. She now runs a small digital design business with her husband. In Congress, Axne will focus on bringing more clean energy jobs to Iowa and improving soil and water quality across the state.
